A fine original US Combat Infantryman Badge, older version with a clear "STERLING" mark on the reverse. Unfortunately one of the original pins appears to have been broken off and then repaired with a piece of a medal bar attached with glue. This CIB shows some damage from use but displays very well and is priced to reflect it's condition.
The Combat Infantryman Badge (CIB) is a United States Army military decoration. The badge is awarded to infantrymen and Special Forces soldiers in the rank of colonel and below, who fought in active ground combat while assigned as members of either an Infantry or Special Forces unit of brigade size or smaller at any time after 6 December 1941.
