RARE TYPE IB ENAMEL HEART ON REX NUMBER 199,615 PURPLE HEART MEDAL!
TYPE II SLOTTED BROOCH BR REX (300,000 MADE) WITH TYPE IB ENAMEL HEART!
100% original issue and perfect number 199,615 SLOTTED BROOCH TYPE II between 1942 and 1943 by REX PRODUCTS (100,000 to 400,000) medals. The fact that this particular medal has a TYPE 1B enamel heart and NOT a plastic heart, would lend you to believe that it was of the first models to be made by Rex, as it is within 33.46% through their total production of only 300,000 medals.

Both the Rex and Robbins Corporations used the initial specifications from the original 1932 and subsequent 1939 Medal Arts contract which called for an enamel heart to be fired and adhered to the front, whereas later on the plastic heart was allowed, as it simplified design and assembly.

This medal has no defects and is in immaculate condition and has a box. The suspension ribbon is strong, has no rips and no problems. Guaranteed original. Case has no lapel pin or extra ribbon.
