These are marked "Nor Sid, Yonkers, 1/20th 10K GF". Any idea what these would be worn on? Garrison caps?

I have seen lots of garrison caps with metal grommets to accept screw-back insignia. Is that what you meant?

It depends on what size these are. The large size (about 1 1/4") would have been worn on the shoulder straps of the uniiform. The smaller sized (about 3/4") would have been worn on the shirt collars or overseas caps.
