Grades are About Uncirculated or Mint State.<p>In March 1929, 11 years after the end of World War I, the United States Congress passed a law authorizing the use of government funds to pay all expenses for mothers and widows of fallen veterans to visit their loved ones buried on the battlefields of Europe. Between 1930 and 1933, some 6,693 Gold Star mothers and war widows made the pilgrimage abroad. This medal was presented by the United States Steamship Lines to the women when they boarded their ships to Europe - regrettably, the relatives of Caucasian soldiers on luxury liners, and the relatives of African-American soldiers on commercial steamers. Apparently a database of Gold Star mothers and widows is available, perhaps allowing the recipient of the numbered medals to be identified.From the Dick Johnson Collection.
