A very fine original WWII era US Army Marksmanship Badge, Expert grade, with clasps for RIFLE and PISTOL marksmanship. Each clasp, as well as the badge itself, is maker marked/sterling sliver. Excellent condition.
The U.S. Army awards Army Marksmanship Qualification Badges to its soldiers, U.S. Army uniformed civilian guards, and foreign military personnel, while the CMP awards these same badges to U.S. civilians who qualify at three different qualification levels (highest to lowest): expert, sharpshooter, and marksman. Suspended from the badge are Army Weapon Qualification Clasps that indicate the type of weapon the individual has qualified to use.
