Great Ebay find, JUST arrived in the mail today. A studio portrait of a WWI era US Marine in his service green uniform with Campaign hat. This Marine is also sporting his "MARKSMAN" shooting badge. Studio is out of St. Louis Missouri. I believe this to be PRE WWI, as the Marine is NOT wearing ANY collar insignia, and by 1919, collar discs would have been worn with this uniform.....Great find for just $12.00....as ANY early US Marine Corps image are very hard to find.
