Military Hero's Star

Recommended Posts

I have had this one since 1992. I was told that it was a copy that was for everyday wear. It seems to be made of brass with some of the gilt finish remaining.

Any opinions? I bought it for 70 dollars fifteen years ago. As you can see, it is unnumbered. Regardless, it makes a great filler.

The tale about "copies for everyday wear" seems to be the unholy invention of enterprising dealers. There's no evidence that such things ever existed. A nice quality "replica" could go on a uniform, but this one seems pretty "brassy" (or is it the scan?).

Thanks guys,

Ed- You are right. It is very brassy. Most of the golden finish has worn off.

Rick- It does make a good filler. I will keep mine for that reason, as there is no way I will ever be able to afford an original at todays prices.
