This is a great USA WWII Bronze Star in Original coffin type WWII case with two ribbons (of which one is a lapel button).
The Bronze Star is named (engraved) on the reverse to: John E. Blum.
A paper which we discovered in the inside of the loose lid of the case reveals that John Eltinge Blum was a born on 6 mai 1917 and was part of the 9th Army. In 1938 he was stationed in Fort Lewis. He was further a pistol and rifle marksman.
A stunning set that deserves to be researched a bit more.
Very rare to find like this!
