BOXED RAREST US NAVY USN 2ND TYPE II MODEL WRAPPED BROOCH PURPLE HEART
FULLY WRAP BROOCH AND ONE OF ONLY 25,000 MEDALS MADE BETWEEN 1944 - 45
Known as the TYPE II (1944 - 1945) Naval 2ND second model, this specimen is Bronze gilt with a plastic heart and a full wrap brooch that is NOT numbered. It is part of the Second Navy contract of October 1944 for 25,000 Hearts. Given that the Navy first model was for 135,000 medals and this 2nd run was only for 25,000 Purple Hearts, this is over 5 times rarer that the first model. It is also in perfect condition and has zero defects.

The short box is original to the Navy and Marine Corps model Purple Hearts.

As shown.
