    I am trying to confirm if this sheath is from WW2. The stales and stitching look correct but I thought there were not any USMC markings on sheaths made during WW2. Any information would be helpfull

    You are correct.
    It is a commemorative item. Probably from, the 80s or later. Possibly from a Case knife.

    If you want to win an argument, it is best to stick to the truth.....or,at least, provable untruths.

    I agree on the "Commemorative" part. The ONLY WWII "USMC" sheath marks I have ever seen were (a) tiny, (b) included a "Boyt 43" mark, and (c) were always located high on the sheath, essentially between the belt slots.

    A Globe-and-Anchor symbol ALWAYS signifies a postwar "commemorative" sheath.

    Regards as always,

    To complicate matters there have been some very convincing repro sheaths made in the recent past. I'm sure some of them have taken on some age by now.

    That wasn't an artful way to describe the location of the marking, so let me try again.

    "... were always located high on the sheath, essentially behind the handle."
