This is a fine First World War era U.S. Marine Corps Expert Rifle badge that is in excellent condition. The crossed Krag rifles Rifles are separately applied to the wreath by means of four small rivets. The top bar retains the fully functional original pin and open catch assembly. The top bar, wreath and rifles exhibit excellent detail and are with a mild, age toned patina. Although unmarked, the badge appears to be sterling silver and remains in excellent condition.
