A local guy found this in a local thrift store and brought it to me for authentification. Needless to say I told him yes it is good w00t.gif and did he want to sell it? Well he wants to spend some time with it but I did take some pictures, so here they are!

It looks like it is from the 1938 metal Arts contract. Probably numbered in the 60-70XXX range.

Kurt - I can tell by the ribbon color and the finish on the planchet that it is a 1933 American Emblems Contract piece. Frank

Got them mixed up. :blink: you are right . The 1938 has the reddish colored thick split brooch.

Hi everyone,

I am the local guy that found the PH in the thrift store. It was refreshing to get honest information from a dealer. Gary was nice and professional. Anyway, the number on the purple heart 44835 or 44885. Was he wounded on one of the biggest battles in WWI? Thanks, Steve
