Description Badges such as this one were given to soldiers in the Swedish Army as a reward in shooting competitions. There were gold, silver, and bronze denominations. The badges have looked the same since the late 1930's - early 1940's and onward. This is a silver pin showing two crossed rifles or snipers, a wreath, and the three crowns.
