Kim-
Those are some interesting disks. Thank you for sharing them. I'm very curious about that maker marked US disk. Rarely do I see them marked as such. Very interesting. I also noticed it's not made of bronze. Maybe 'pot metal'?

Can anyone confirm the use of 'pot metal' for collar disks? Obviously it was used to a certain extent. Funny thing is I can't find a reference to its use.

These came from a massive grouping I have of a man who served in WWI, between the wars and into WWII. I have yet to get the time to photograph and post the items.

This one appears ordinary at first but the interesting part is on the back. An early pinback and it's maker marked too! Maker marked on back: " Amer. Emb. Co. Inc. Utica NY.
Kim



That is one killer disc!!!
American Emblem Company marked seems very unusual with a pinback as well.
Do you have any reference to this type.
Cheers

Thanks for your interest. I've asked around the last couple years with different collectors but have been unsuccessful in getting more information. One fellow who collects strictly American Emblem stuff never saw one marked like this this early. this disk came with an 89th division grouping that I still have. Kim

I got it from manion's about 10 or so years ago, I think it's too well made to be trench art but don't know for sure. I have seen others like it with and without pictures in them.

More interesting disks. Love it!

Brad-
Those are some fascinating disks in your collection. That 'trench art' U.S. disk is quite unique to say the least. Great find! I also found that Philippine Scout collar disk also to be intriguing. That variation wasn't in the Scipio book. I was curious as to the meaning of the scratched areas...

Dave- Nice Ambulance company disk!

That is a WW1 Pioneer Infantry disc with the "P" superimposed on the crossed rifles. A Philippine Regiment would have the "P" in the upper angle.

What is the meaning of "The carry of" collars? Do you mean that the emblems should be on opposite sides?
