Hi all,

 

I picked up this nice name tag

Probably made on leaf in Japan Camp NARA area 

Date engraved on the back 3/9/53

The privat was in the  2nd division 23 regiment.

 

Did they use and was it allowed to use these private made tags on a dress tunic or IKE jacket

 

Thank you

I was wondering who got this group.  These are most typically seen used in garrison on field uniforms, not so much on the dress uniforms.

 

The Corporal chevrons in this lot also looked theather made, as did the CIB.  Did you get paperwork with it?  There was a 7th Division patch included so I am surprised that you say he was 23d Infantry regiment.  Here's a photo of the vet (left) with his brother (right):

Yes thats him.

 

I missed only the CIB wich i regret it was in the middle of the night when bidding ends..

The seller was helpful to send paper copy,s with the group

The spearheaders badge came from the same estate sale but i think it was mixed up

The CIB was in the auction pircture, but I did not see the spearheader badge for sale.  Anyway, here are a couple photos of the brass name plates in use:

Brass and Nickle NAME plates were two types of the few NAME plates and tags used from the late Korean war period up till the late-ish 50s.

As yours is engraved in 1953 yes, but It's more of a post 53 fashion, seen more and more after that date, and then worn by only a few officers and men as it was not a regulation to do so, this would include the few different types, IE Brown or Black Leather fobs, Leather tags, both with clear windows with name either stamped, stenciled or written, and the Black plastic with White name, which then came in various sizes and dimensions.

Here's an example of one the other type tags of this period around 1955-57, a leather tag (Brown or Black) with clear plastic window, name would either stamped stenciled or hand written, it depended on the guy.
