Vintage Genuine WWI or Early WWII Navy and Marine Corps USMC Purple Heart Award medal with wide 1/2 inch ribbon bar in Purple Case.

Great early medal. Medal is in excellent conditon with great eye appeal. Made of sterling silver.
Medal has the split brooch pin assembly. I believe this is called a Type 1 medal as they were the first produced. Reverse has "FOR MILITARY MERIT".

Also has the Navy and Marine Corps USMC thick ribbon bar that was used during this time.

This is an early medal case back when they came in the Purple Cases. Outside of the case is in nice shape.  Inside of case has some imperfectons where the medal was pinned to the purple pad inside.  Also the inside top lid looks like it had some paper stuck to it at one time.

Early in WWII
 they switched to the more standard size black cases.
Hard to find set.

Listing is for one medal, one ribbon bar, and one purple case.
Guaranteed Genuine.
