Thanks for the images. These will definitely help determine my collection.

Larry, this is an attempt to answer your question with examples from my collection. It is probably more infomation than you really wanted but it is an area with many variations and spec changes.

The chevrons with all of the rockers are the pre / early WW2 specialist chevrons. These were replaced with the T chevrons.

I don't think those chevrons would be considered rare but they certainly are getting harder to find.

What are you interested in on the SPEC 8 & 9? Did you want pics or something else?

NO BIG INTEREST. iT WAS JUST A RANK THAT WAS CREATED AND NEVER WORN. YES THEY ARE GETTING HARDER AND HARDER TO FIND.
PIC WOULD BE NICE.

Here are some pics. I included the SPEC 7 too as it had a shorter run than the others below it.

Fantastic pics of the rank. I greatly appreciate the effort. Did anyone ever hold Spec8-9 rank. None that I know of. However, I do not knoe everything.

According to Emerson in his book "Chevrons" the SPEC 8 and 9 rank was never used.

Craig, what the heck is this thing? I think it is a cut-down. If so, they took their time to do it right.

I'm not sure what it is but would agree with you that it is a cut down.
