I've never seen these with a WW2 only lot, I believe most of the Gemsco pieces in this style to be late 1940's and 1950's vintage. Nice pick-up for 22 bones. Congrats.

I agree the construction is quality that is commonly seen in the 1940's, but I have yet to "see" any in a lot belonging to just a WW2 Marine, or see any pre 1945 in any photographic reference that I have in my database. I'd be interested in any dated photos one may have showing these 1945 or before.
That was a good buy - get some lottery tickets tonight. IMHO they are pre or early WW2. They are nice thick heavy bronze, solid smooth back to the reverse. Unlike those found in the latter era when you began to thin and light weight examples with hollow backs, and production or approval numbers stamped on them. s/f Darrell
