Picked these up for a song, 2 bucks, they don't glow!
are they 1950's era or earlier?

Thanks again in advance.

These are 1950's era. I believe this style (w/o crossed rifles), came out in 1954 and were replaced in 1958-59 by the current style with crossed rifles. 1958 was when Lance Cpl. was added.
