A few of the collar discs I've saved. As you can see, I'm not a very organized collector, or a organized human being for that matter. I do like collar brass. I feel it's an often underappreciated collectible. 


Jennings - any chance you can post a close up of the front & back to that aviation/US disc seen just above the Son in Service one? That looks a customized variation I haven't seen before.

All things considered would these be a highly collectible and sought after disk? Infantry and makers mark?

Sadly no. The interwar period is a big gray area when it comes to determining values on discs. They only get a fraction of the $ when compared to WWI insignia. At least that's been my experience in dealing with WWI aviation discs.

Here is my Grandfather's disk. He was a buck Sgt. in Co. K, 11th Cav. Later transferred to Field Arty.

More on him soon.

I've been sifting through these great rare discs, like this one, looking for a postal express/ running greyhound over lightning bolts- has anyone ever seen such a disc?

Thanks!

David

Not this guy. Sorry David...

Adding to the above, he was at Camp Harry J. Jones in Arizona, near the Mexican border. Enlisted early May 1918, arrived at that camp later that month. He had immigrated to the US as a boy 9 years earlier, and was a subject of the Russian Empire (from Latvia). Naturalized as a US citizen in June 1918 while at that camp. All the affidavit and witnesses were Captains in the 302nd cavalry. Don't know much beyond that...can't find anything on Fold3.

That's an impressive collection of MP & PMD insignia … very nice.

 

What are the red MP collar tabs sewn onto? It looks sort of like a collar, but from what?

Love the Home Guard discs.  Don't see them very often.        MHJ

My grandfather was in Company B, 140th Infantry Regiment. If I've understood the previous posts correctly, there are two combinations of collar discs he could have worn:

1) "US" on right, "140" + crossed rifles + "B" on left

2) "US" + "140" on right, crossed rifles + "B" on left

 

Is this correct?

50th Artillery Rgt, C.A.C -although trained in France, this regiment did not see combat before Armistice was signed. Bronze disk with standard threaded post & nut.

The 50th Artillery CAC never ordered this collar disk.  They used a US 50 disk.  Although that's not to say that some member of the 50CAC didn't take it upon himself to use a disk he obtained.  These disks were used by companies for the most part.  Do this example would belong to the 50th Artillery Company
