Over the years I've had an interest in embroidered CIBs & EIBs.

For a starter here are some with award ribbons.

 

 

This is a very nice example. Easier to find ribbon bars with a bullion CIB than examples like this that are embroidered.

Saw this one on eBay and thought it was different enough to post the pics. Sold by Oryon, an Italian company (made in China). Would be interesting to see if it has any markings on the back. A quick Google search shows that Oryon sells all types of US and foreign "replica" military badges.

Interesting, Bob ... unfortunately, the photo is blurry because the seller didn't open the package.

Here's a odd ball, I'm not sure if it's faded, or made this way (error), but it's a two tone enamel. It came off a 11th abn div uniform, it's kinda cool lookingrps20170705_171643_127.jpg

All nice ones, MECHINF-A15. Especially like the very first one with what almost looks like a sawed-off stock!

Here's a new bullion badge I picked up. Only about 2.5in wide, so not full size but a little larger than a "mini" badge.

Background is hand embroidered blue thread.

Nice one, Bob! At some point you ought to consider doing a "group shot" of all those cool bullion CIBs you have.
