    For show and tell today, a new CIB.

    I found a great site with info on the different issue US CIB's through the years (CIB), and pinpointed this example on ebay. It's marked "sterling" as you'd expect a WW2 issue to be, has one 6mm and one 7mm pin which is right in line with WW2 issue which should be 6-7mm, is 3 inches long, and has clutches that are flat bottom (not bumped) and also marked "sterling" and correctly numbered. All-in-all a textbook WW2 CIB I believe.

    goodwill / thrift stores, yard sales can be quite productive as the enclosed pics show. clutch fasteners are Bellau , Meyer etc. the silver badges are well tarnished
