I picked up a uniform grouping from a WWII/50s era USAAF and USAF crew chief...He served in WWII in the CBI and later in the post war USAF...among the typical collar brass, stripes, and medals are a pair of F-86 pins...with screw backs....I hav enever seen these on a uniform, and would not think they are a uniform item, but a souvenir pin....any thoughts or have seen a set like these?
