This is in our opinion one of the
Rarest of the World War II Stars.
The Atlantic Star was instituted in May
of 1945 to honour those who took place
in the Battle of the Atlantic. It was mainly
for those who were part of shipping
convoys, a mission that many did not
come back from. It was also for those
who were their escorts and anti-submarine
We've handled many World War II
medals, but this is the first group of
Atlantic Stars that we've had the privilege
to offer. Complete with ribbon, for
those brave sailors who fought against
the U-boats. It is rare and teaches one
Of the eight different campaign stars awarded during
the Second World War two of the scarcer issues are
the Pacific Star and the Burma Star.
We are able to offer a small quantity of The Burma
Star, which was awarded for operational service in the
Burma campaign and in Bengal or Assam, broadly from
1941 to early 1944.
We have just seven of these scarce campaign stars
with the appropriate ribbon available, so don't miss out!
This is an interesting medal for our growing band of collectors of war medals. An original medal issued to members of the Greek armed forces during the Second World War. These pieces should be of great interest to collectors, as due to the comparatively smaller numbers issued they are not so often seen or offered for sale! The number of pieces available is quite limited, and we are now offering them at a very reasonable price.
