Thanks for the images. These will definitely help determine my collection.

Larry, this is an attempt to answer your question with examples from my collection. It is probably more infomation than you really wanted but it is an area with many variations and spec changes.

The chevrons with all of the rockers are the pre / early WW2 specialist chevrons. These were replaced with the T chevrons.

 

Are they rare? Do you have anything on Spec 8 and 9?

Thanks for the info

I don't think those chevrons would be considered rare but they certainly are getting harder to find.

 

What are you interested in on the SPEC 8 & 9? Did you want pics or something else?

 

NO BIG INTEREST. iT WAS JUST A RANK THAT WAS CREATED AND NEVER WORN. YES THEY ARE GETTING HARDER AND HARDER TO FIND.

PIC WOULD BE NICE.
