Great wartime era produced EIB with pin back.
The Expert Infantryman’s Badge was created in 1943, and although similar to the Combat Infantryman’s Badge (with Wreath) this badge signified a soldier’s proficiency in infantry skills, where the CIB, by its name is awarded to those who have served in combat.
The 3 inch badge is marked Sterling, and is pin back with a locking ring. The blue enamel is in fine condition, applied around the M1795 Springfield Musket.
A nice early piece with pin-bar, and not commonly seen in WWII; most often encountered with clutch back mountings.
