Description
United States of America - A personalized Heart Shield Bible.
Original - Good condition

Unique addition to your WW2 collection: A personalized Heart Shield Bible. The Heart Shield Bible is made to fit in the top pocket. The metal plate was supposed to prevent a bullet from reaching the heart. There are several stories that prove that it actually helped.

On the gilded plate is the text: May this keep you safe from harm. It was given to private Carl O Jordan by his mother. As an extra, two personal photos are attached.

As visible in the photos, the exterior has the usual and understandable wear after use on the battlefield and 80 years of age. The inside (New Testament) is in very good condition.
