Gunnery Sergeant, United States Marine Corps (3 chevrons and two arcs) and First Sergeant (same with diamond), poissbly made before 1942? I have these from about 1898 to 1958, they are not easy to acquire, especially the Sergeant Major of three chevrons with three arcs and a star in the centre. Not the later 3 chevrons and 4 arcs and star used after 1958 to present. "SEMPER FI!" to our Marine Corps fellow members. Sarge Booker of Tujunga, California 91042-2731 ( [email protected] ) :rolleyes:

Both of these are for Staff Sergeant, one for khaki summer and the other for the dress blue uniform. :)

JASON: Here is one for Corporal, U.S.M.C.! When I drool, I wear a bib, keeps the the front of my shirt dry! I know what you mean, Jason! Imagine this framed and on your wall? My wife would make me take them down and replace the space with dome "dime-store" knick-knack maybe? http://www.usmilitar...tyle_emoticons/default/w00t.gif Sarge

Actually, my wife would love those, since I'm a Sergeant of Marines, and she's a Corporal of Marines...both honorably discharged, but the upper level of our house has Marine 'stuff' all over the place.

So, thankfully (for me) she understands!

JASON: Semper Fi to both of you, what a wonderful thing to have a partner like that, lucky you! http://www.usmilitar...tyle_emoticons/default/thumbsup.gif Sarge (Not sure the title of these Marine Corps Band chevrons?)

Maaan. I dunno on those myself. My initial idea is "Master Gunnery Sergeant", since they have the 4 rockers below. They also look 'small'...which if they are, would be for a female.

Not something seen every day no matter what they are...

And yeah...I'm REAL lucky!
