OK, finally figured out how to post a picture... after much effort to crop & resize to get it small enough.

Here's a pre-WW2 1st Sgt chevron with only 2 rockers....

No, the coat has chevrons on both sides.

I just picked up a tunic this weekend with another pair of very rare USMC chevrons, 1937 pattern Platoon Sergeant, 3 chevrons, 1 rocker, and star in the center. Very scarce as they were only worn for a few years until WW2 broke out.
