Finally got these shooting medals into a shadow box. All are engraved to B. C. Williby. The earliest is dated 1929. The latest 1939. I'm patiently waiting for the archives to open so I can get his records. His brothers WW2 dogtags came with the group so I threw them in there too.

Hey All - 

 

I've looked around all over this page and cannot find mention of the attached medal.  Sorry if it has been discussed elsewhere...

 

I can find no information on this badge, is it a fantasy piece?

 

Thanks, Ross

Gunny,

This is something that someone put together.  Looks like they used the suspension bar from a Distinguished Marksman badge and attached some other pendant to the bottom.  Have seen this floating around the internet for awhile.  I wouldn't spend any money on it personally if that is what you are contemplating (unless you already own it).

Thanks Sgt. Maddox. 

 

Somehow I just knew it, but couldn't help dropping $20 on it. It will go in my "you should have known better" drawer :)

For $20, it's still cool!  I have a pretty large collection of Blackinton made USMC shooting awards if you ever feel like checking them out.  They are posted on my FB which is in my signature.
