    What size is it? Large are for slouch hats and small for peak caps, side caps and jacket collars and it is WW2

    Rene it is 2 1/2 inches wide by 1 3/4 inches tall so would this be considered the larger one for a slouch hat.

    Consider it WW2 any 46-49 would be quite rare as most would have been pre 45 mfg because of the huge scaling down of the armed forces. There is no real way of determining post 45.
    Also look very closely at the rear as Aussie mfg. marks can be difficult to see.
    Oh when you say pin back it's like this yes? also note the feint mfg. mark
