Stunning and rare WWII US Distinguished Service Cross including original factory box.

The Distinguished Service Cross is the United States Army’s second highest military award for soldiers who display extraordinary heroism in combat with an armed enemy force.
The Distinguished Service Cross was first awarded during World War I and only 13,462 were awarded.

The Distinguished Service Cross is awarded to a person who, while serving in any capacity with the Army (or in the Air Force, before 1960), distinguishes themselves by extraordinary heroism not justifying the award of a Medal of Honor; while engaged in an action against an enemy of the United States; while engaged in military operations involving conflict with an opposing/foreign force; or while serving with friendly foreign forces engaged in an armed conflict against an opposing armed force in which the United States is not a belligerent party. The act or acts of heroism must have been so notable and have involved risk of life so extraordinary as to set the individual apart from their comrades
