Early Israeli Army quartermasters corps metal cap badge, 1948-50. The badge is slightly curved and was worn on the army's first type of hat, the so-called 'Hitelmacher' hat (see item 0110004). There are two prongs on the reverse which would have held the badge to the hat. The badge also has a contoured piece of blue velvet fastened to it, which at that time signified the wearer's service in the quartermaster/logistics corps. A fine piece of Israeli militaria - a rare instance of investment in solid metal insignia for the military (weight: 9.90g), and a scarce piece overall. Not maker-marked. In EF condition as most of the coarse dotted finish on the surface is still intact and the details well preserved.
