    I believe these are the post war variation (A1) and the A6 is wartime.

    The design for one. After seeing the reverse and those 'nubby' clutches,
    it must indeed be post war. WWII era insignia are often pin-back and
    maker marked. As well, a lot were made of sterling silver with most
    companies manufacturing their own individual designs.

    I don't mean to hijack your thread Rene, but below are some poorly
    photographed examples of WWII (plus a couple of later type)
    officer insignia.........
