See the scans. This is a beutiful example of the WWII period U.S. Marine Corps officer's service cap device. It is in the wartime gun metal gray color with intricate fouling. Excellent quality, about 1 5/8" top to bottom, reverse is hallmarked "STERLING" with the stylized Hilbourne-Hamburger eagle.

Generally excellent condition. Great display item! 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. George B. Harris, P.O. Box 1136, Alfred, NY 14802.
