Picked this up today out of the scrap box, its marked BB&B and 14k . Would this be a collar isnignia or a sweetheart pin with the straight pin on the back?

That is the real deal dress collar emblem! Somewhere from the teens-1920s. Well done

Only officers have ever been authorized to actually wear silver & gold emblems

It was likely for the collar, or more likely, the shoulder board for wear with the mess dress uniform because of the pinback. Great emblem, if you ever want to let it go, please let me know

Very nice, very desirable, very scarce, very expensive emblem to add to any EGA collection. Were I you, I would go back and search that place from top to bottom and back, and every inch, for its mate!

I suppose it was a long shot... You have a superb example for your insignia collection. I'd keep an eye-out at that place, never know...
