I'm looking on ebay for a pair of WWII USMC PFC Chevrons (Green on Red) and see several. How can I tell if they are WWII?


Thanks for the Help

Craig

Green on red felt without the crossed rifles should be good for you OR ask here on the forum. Someone may have a pair for you.

a single chevron for PFC, do not get ones that appear to be a ribbed embroidered green chevron these are tell signs of a 60s issue one, the type may have come out in the 50s but it still will be not WWII, heres a example of what I'm taking about.

This is one of the styles from WWII and Pre war.
