    Slot broach Purple Heart, WWII production.

    The number is just a serial number.  As far as I know, there is no way to match that number with a recipient.  If you know the name of the recipient, you might be able to prove it was his by matching the number on his service record.  That is, if the service record exists, and someone actually made note of the medal No.

    I think non the USMilitariaForum, there is a guy who has a large (though incomplete) list of Purple Heart serial numbers and the soldiers they were issued to. Try searching for that post. You might get lucky.
