So, I just got this one. It is supposedly from a Korean War vet. While I'm familiar with the solid brass rank insignia, this one is higher quality and stamped. It is definitely Korean made, but I haven't seen any other US rank insignia made like this. The last two photos show it with a Korean insignia for comparison. Does anyone here happen to have some as well?

Donated to Museum of the Soldier by a local Korean War veteran who was wounded by a landmine on May 7th, 1952 near Kumwha.
