“THE HAYES BROS. CO.”
The United States Marine Corps award two types of Marine Corps Marksmanship Qualification Badges, one for the service rifle and one for the service pistol, to all Marines who qualify at three different qualification levels (highest to lowest): Expert, Sharpshooter, and Marksman. These qualification badges are suspended beneath a brooch which bears the name of the type of weapon (rifle or pistol) and the qualification level earned. Some of these badges are different in appearance, depending on the type of weapon and qualification level.
According to the Marine Corps History Division, the Marine Corps used to award three different styles/types of Marksmanship Qualification Badges. Starting in 1912, the Marine Corps began awarding the Army Rifle Marksmanship Badges to Marines who qualified with the service rifle. As with the Army, the Marine Corps awarded these Rifle Marksmanship Badges at three qualification levels (highest to lowest): Expert, Sharpshooter, and Marksman. Clasps were added to the Sharpshooter and Expert badges indicating each requalification date of the Marine. The Army Expert Rifle Marksmanship Badge is almost identical to the current version of the Marine Corps Expert Rifle Qualification Badge, but used crossed M1903 Springfield Rifles vs. M1 Garands with slings. In 1924, the Marine Corps replaced these badges with the Army Marksmanship Qualification Badges, which are still in use by the U.S. Army. However, the Marine Corps decided to bring back the older Army Rifle Marksmanship Badges in 1937. That same year, the Marine Corps introduced the Basic Badge for marksmanship qualifications with other weapon systems. Clasps were hung from the Basic Badge indicating the type of weapon and level of qualification. The clasps indicated the degree of proficiency by using the letters \"SS\" for Sharpshooter or \"EX\" for Expert, followed by the name of the weapon. The exception to this rule was a U.S. Marine Corps Reserve clasps for the .30 caliber Rifle Course D (\"RIFLE-D\") which included \"MM\" for Marksman. Much like the Army Weapon Qualification Clasps, the clasps of the Basic Badge fluctuated with additions and deletions in 1949 and again in 1954. The following clasps were authorized for wear on the Basic Badge under the 1937 Marine Corps Uniform Regulation (listed with exact inscription)
