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 people. 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 humility.
