This is a very WWII sterling officers crossed skis pin. These are 100% original, they are sterling marked, pinback, measure 3" long! They have the officers insignia on the front, almost looks like a General Officers rank designation. I've seen many variations of these over the years, some real, some not, this is the first type pattern I have seen like this. Just beautiful! The US looks sterling while the "Eagle" is bronze. I will venture a guess that if you let this one pass you by, you wont have another opportunity to get another like it. 10th Mountain stuff is rare to begin with and this is as rare as they get! Good luck.
