Question on this USMC SSI

Recommended Posts

Actually, I have two questions. Number one, how does this USMC SSI look? Secondly, does anyone have a website that clearly depicts the WWI SSI of the 2nd Division identifying the unit by shape, color, etc.? I had one bookmarked, but can't seem to find it.

 

Thank you!

Ken

Yes it is, I wasn't going to bid, but what I am trying to do is acquaint myself with the "look" of period SSI- not to mention being able to finally ID these.

It does look like a correct occupation made embroidered on felt 2/6 patch. These are faked though, and pretty well.
