    I know that the sharpshooter badge is an older one. They now have a EGA (Eagle, Globe & Anchor) in the center of the cross. The other are what we called toilet seats quals. Marksman( Circle target). What I really like is the Marksman bar for hand grenade. I really got to research that. Because what are the qual's for expert on that?????? I have always been told that "close only counts in horseshoes and hand grenades"

    I know they are from our past just have to research them. I know I'm a Marine and I feel like shit not knowing them.!!!!! So you know I'll check

    They are awesome Gary!!!!

    Yes they are WW2 Gary!!!
    Sorry it took so long. I have had our Precision Approach Radar AFU for that last week and I have had to get it fixed before I could do any researching.
    I hate when work gets in the way of fun!!!

    You are quite welcome Gary. It was my pleasure.
    I'm just curious because I can't tell from the pic's. But do they possibly have a sterling marking on the backs?
    Some where made of sterling that is why I ask.
