1st Infantry Regiment 6th Inf Division CIB Grouping

1st Infantry Regiment Uniform World War II Grouping

6th Infantry Division

Now, before I get into describing this group, please understand that any coat I receive I try to preserve in its original condition. The coat these items came from, however, was just too far gone to save. In turn, I carefully removed the insignia to at least keep them for future generations. These items were taken off a size 39R four pocket model coat that I picked up years ago. The grouping is, unfortunately, unnamed, but is fairly complete.

This auction is for everything seen. The group includes a sterling Combat Infantry Badge (with sterling clutches), sergeant stripes, two overseas bars (12 months service), ruptured duck discharge, good conduct medal and two ribbons, a ribbon bar for the American Campaign, Asiatic Theater Campaign, and the Philippine Liberation medal (pinback bar). The group also comes with an enlisted visor hat disk, clutchback infantry collar brass (flat faced WWII clutches), 1st Infantry Regiment DUI's (pinback), and all buttons and nomenclature (February 1942 tag) from the coat. If you are wondering, the Good Conduct medal and hat brass were in a small packet that accompanied the coat.
