See the scans. This is a scarce U.S. Marine Corps officer dress Paymaster branch device from WWII. Marine Gunners, plus members of the Paymaster's Department, Adjutant and Inspector's Department and the Aides to General Officers had their own distictive brass during WWII. This is the usual 1" high and 1 1/8" wide with the threaded post and nut fastener. First of these I have had in quite awhile.

Generally VF condition. Great display item or it would make a nice gift for a Marine collector. NO RESERVE !!!

I will be listing other interesting American military insignia this week.

NOTE: I am very good about getting my orders out promptly, sometimes same day and almost always within 24 hours. However, lately the U.S. postal "service" has been very spotty. In the last several months, I have had first class insured items take over a month to California and two weeks in New York State. Most are delivered in a timely fashion, but a few are not. NEW RULES FOR 2007 - NO OVERSEAS SALES, CANADA AND U.S. ONLY. Sorry about that, but my airmail small packets are being stolen enroute to England and Belgium. ALSO: ALL ITEMS MUST HAVE AT LEAST MINIMUM ($50) INSURANCE. NO EXCEPTIONS UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES! Buyer pays $4.00 for insured postage. I will combine postage on multiple orders. PAY PAL, check or money order, please. Thanks.
