    Pretty tough to see as well as it appears to be a stylized picture of a flintlock.

    Based on some very sketchy design elements, I'm going to guess it is the US Musket Model 1816. Here's what I picked out

    • Flintlock (see both the hammer and frizzen?)
    • Split front barrel band
    • Extended tang
    • 3 barrel bands

    Then again, it's hard to tell from the picture...it could be a Charleville musket for all I know...but neither the comb nor the ramrod matches.

    Cool! Glad to see I'm not the only one who likes to waste time looking up arcane things. :) :D

    GC70's post has a link direct to info on the CIB. If you're looking for other Army awards and insignia, a good place to start is the Army Institute of Heraldry at www.tioh.hqda.pentagon.mil. Their website has a pretty nifty search engine.
