WWII Amico USMC General Stars

Recommended Posts

Anyone know, would these be WWII USMC issue General Stars?

 

They are pin back and marked Amico Sterling... Large fat, rounded style star

 

Came from an Armored Veteran who was field promoted to Lt. in WWII, revived PH, BS, & SS Medals. He also served in Korea, in a graves registration unit... No idea how he got these!

Officers bought their own rank, but yes, these types of smooth stars were popular with many USMC Generals

USMC regs specified "smooth, slightly dapped or domed" stars for general ranks in the WW2 period. The USN also specified "plain, raised and rounded" stars for collar rank. The Navy regs changed to "pyramidal" stars in 1961, not sure about the Marines.
