The Combat Infantryman Badge


Recommended Posts

Cobra 6 Actual

Your’s is actually ‘centered’ nicer, rd12; with the front sight post and the top of the carrying handle flush with the top of the rectangle.

Here’s the M-1 version:

I’m still ‘on the prowl’ for an M-14 version.

I’ve seen an M1 carbine version but it was a modern badge.  Never seen an M-14 version.

Here’s the pic. I don’t know if this has been posted before. The carbine looks stamped or maybe cast. 
The CIB is Vietnam era.

Yep, rd12, it’s included on the Unauthorized CIB Thread. It was actually made with an M-1 Carbine pewter pin (I happened to notice it one day while browsing eBay). Actually, what surprises me most is that there is not a UA one yet with the M-4 replacing the 1795 Springfield musket.

Okay, went through 82 pages of this thread and I think I have one not shown.

 

The background is enameled and looks like a 3rd division patch.

 

Has anyone else seen one like this?

Never saw that one before. Very unusual, 3rd div is a good start

New one to me!  Looks to be a Williams and Anderson, Vietnam era CIB.

Here;s one that was posted in an E-Bay link recently, I thought I might save the images and add it here, a direct embroidered CIB above custom ribbons on a 80th Inf Div officers OD wool shirt, all early German made I suppose.

Here's three more images I found, of it, as we now see the ribbons are directly embroidered as well, when we first posted the two shots we thought the ribbons, while embroidered, were sewn on as one patch as it were, a triple, embroidered on say card or some other stiff medium.
