    Default "U.S." pin

    Is there any way to tell what era this is from? I've had this for years. Got it from a flea market in Colorado. No markings on it that I can find. But, I'm sure there's been a million of these made.

    Thanks,
    Scott

    Great! I didn't know when I bought it, just liked it and bought it. I'll put it with my WW2 stuff then.

    Thanks!

    Very cool.
    It looks like an officer's US collar device put on a disc to look like an enlisted man's collar device. Interesting!!!

    This is the first US bit I bought. I'd like to get more though. Just seemed like the axis stuff would get harder to find quicker. But, the ally stuff is getting up there these days.
