I have enough money to last me the rest of my life, unless I buy something.

Got a retired Gunny friend on another forum that had this to say about that badge:
“That's a WWII era badge. If that's what he's looking for tell him to run a search for WWII USMC Marine Corps Expert Marksman Shooting Badge Gemsco Pistol Rifle in ebay. He would have to find the rifle marksman bar. I'll look around. That's gonna be hard to find.”
Good luck,
R/Griff
