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.

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

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.

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.

It is common to see the pin back fastener on the bar like this from the fimr of Newcombe in New York. Newcombe made a lot of sterling DUIs and they all seem to have this fastener.
