Hey Jay, Post 1950- this insignia as a metal badge was not authorized for wear until Sep 1950, all of the WW2 examples are cloth! Though these are almost always sold on ebay and other sites as being from WW2.

zsmith,you are correct,enlisted had the cloth ,usually sewn on the lower right sleeve ,i was hoping these were officiers.
