This is believed to date from between 1946 and 1952.  Some believe it to be a cloth DI but at 2.5 inches tall its somewhat big for that.  

 

Full motto is "Long and Deadly"

While cleaning out my Grandmother's house we found 3 of these pins. Same thing.

I know my Grandfather was in an artillery group, but he died before I knew him, so I don't know anything else about them.

From SAWICKI's book, page 998.  The 773rd earned 5 Campaign Streamers in Europe during WWII.  This insignia was not approved until 6 March 1953. It was inactivted on 26 December 1945 at Camp Bowie, TX.  It was reactivated 2 December 1946 as part of the Organized Reserve with Headquarters at Pittsbugh, PA.  It was inactivated in Pittsburgh on 25 March 1948.

FIELD ARTILLERY IS THE KING OF BATTLE!​
