    Default USA cap badge WW2?

    Here I go again asking for info without pics, visited my local antiques and collectables fair and picked up what I hope is a ww2 US cap badge, it is a screw back in 4 pieces,(all on a threaded pin ) piece 1 is like the attached pic with eagle and shield, piece 2 is a brass coloured disc with an edge, piece 3 is a washer with two spikes or pins and piece 4 is a circular washer ,Name:  SKU1531web.jpg

    Looks like it is from the 70s or 80s from the picture given definitely not ww2

    sorry for the confusion folks my fault, waiting for the camera batteries to charge so the pic I posted was a random one from google to illustrate the eagle, I realise this pic is showing a modern staybrite type badge, my badge is more the colour and feel of ww2 british cap badges, sorry for any confusion, if a mod could remove the pic please i will get some of the real one when the batteries are charged.

    I think I understand you jwp, It is usually a good sign of a WWII cap badge if it is multi part construction. Post war they are generally stamped and the only removeable part is the washer or pin that holds the badge on. That is not a terrible price but here in the US I imagine they are easier to find / cheaper, post a picture when you can.

    Definitely not a WWII badge. This badge is still being used today.

    In post 6 he stated that the photo used was just a general example that is not the one in question...
