Air Medal
« on: July 04, 2016, 04:46:45 AM »
Hello
Picked up this nice Air Medal recently.

I've noticed that one of the star point seems to have a small hook like piece at the tip.

Do you think this has been dropped? a manufacturing flaw or something else?

Any opinion is appreciated

Lee

Any of the above I suppose Lee?!

Incidentally...this eBay page provides good info re dating US medals.

A nice full wrap broach indeed. I doubt it is a munufacturing flaw, probably a drop, regardless it is a nice medal.
