MERRILL'S MARAUDERS BADGE PIN


Recommended Posts

Definitely post WW2 - even newer. This is the Distinctive Unit Insignia (DUI) for the 75th Ranger Regiment. The design was originally approved in 1969 for the 75th Infantry Regiment, it became the DUI for the 75th Ranger Regiment in 1986. Of course, the design is based upon the 5307th Composite Unit (Provisional), commonly referred to as Merrill's Marauders.

As for exact date, I can't say, but I would put it post-1986.
