Picked this CBI DUI up this weekend. Would like to confirm it is a WW2 era piece. Nice enamel colors / finish. Straight pin back, with rolling clasp.

It looks more modern to me than a piece from WW2.

Was making a deal and I prob over paid, but I took a chance. Here is a better shot of the shield.

Looks like a typical 1940's "patch type" to me.

I don't like the color and type of pin. It looks modern to me as well.

I'm assuming the reverse shot has a bright flash, which makes it look weird.   In looking at it again, it appears there may be a separate mounting bar for the pin assembly?  if so, that would be "strange" for one of these.

Any markings on the back, hard to tell?

The transparent red enamel with pebbled ribbon in the base is a feature of period DIs.

I agree with those that think that this is WWII vintage. It also appears that the pin back fastener is mounted on a bar.

Here is a better shot of the back. I looked hard, but no markings.

Our family Marauders' lapel pin looks like this on the obverse, but is an early screw back attachment reverse.
