The picture below shows a larger front and back view of this Old Engraved World War II Service Member Next of Kin Gold Star Lapel Pin. This Gold Star pin was awarded to the next of kin of a United States Service Member during World War II. The person is unknown, but their initials ''H.F.H.'' were engraved on the back. We do not believe that it is made of gold. It has a gold star surrounded by a gold wreath and is marked on the back as follows:

H.F.H.
ACT OF CONGRESS
UNITED STATES OF AMERICA
1 AUGUST 1947

The pin measures about 9/16'' wide. It appears to be in excellent used condition as pictured. Below here, for reference, is some additional information about this Gold Star lapel pin:
