    This is a WW2 US military Purple Heart Medal. The case style along with broach backshows this was WW2 manufacture however the USA produced far more than were required so these medals were still being issued up until the start of the Vietnam conflict when the new style case and broach finally completely replaced the old WW2 medals. Other ribbons which came with this medal shows it was actually issued for injuries suffered in WW2.

      These WW2 PHs were still being issued in the early part of the current wars-- Iraq and Afghanistan!
