Hi all,

I've had this one for awhile,just now getting around to posting it.I don't know much about these except that some very brave fellows wore them.

I picked this up because I liked the way it looked.Nice and salty.I'm no expert but this looks stamped to me.If anyone can help with a maker and time frame of manufacture,please do.

 

Thanks

I think it looks fine.

 

Just a guess but looks Japanese ? made to me.Similiar to jump wings and CIBs Ive seen fro the Korea era.

Maybe others will be able to give you a more definate answer.

Nice looking theater made CMB.I volunteer at the local VA here and one of the guys on the floor is a former combat medic.He was in Korea with the 7th INF DIV.I was a medic in the service but peacetime.I give these guys and all combat vets a big thanks.

Thanks guys.What really attracted me to this piece is that "been there" look it has.I also like the feather detail in the wings.I looked online for CMB's and I noticed most have a full wreath and mine and a few others I saw have the 3/4 wreath.Not sure if it makes any difference,just something I noticed.

As others alluded too, this is probably Japanese made, which is why the badge looks a little bit different than the US-made examples - Its a very nice piece!

Agreed, Japanese made, as a comparison, a CIB from the CIB topic, note the back, it's just like the CMB posted here.
