Hi, I picked this sword up at an estate sale, just thought it was interesting. If anyone can tell me anything about it that would be great! While sheathed from end to end it is 32 inches long. Please let me know if any other info would be helpful! Thanks!
EcoEstate posted a topic in U.S. Orders, Awards & DecorationsHi, I acquired these 3 WWII military badges a while back, and I thought that all three were authentic. Someone recently told me that all of these pieces that are authentic have raised lettering on the back, instead of engraved. And also that the pin back should only open about half way instead of flipping all the way back. My large Nav pin does have these characteristics. The gunner pin opens all the way, and also has engraved "sterling" on the back. My small nav pin only opens half way, but the sterling mark is also engraved. Can anyone help me figure this out? Thanks! From top to bottom: Photos 1&2 = Small Nav Photos 3&4 = Large Nav Photos 5&6 = Gunner
