Hi,

 

I'm not an expert in DUI's and Lapel Pins so I want to ask if someone can help me.The DUI/Lapel Pin has a screw back and is made of sterling silver.

The Cav.DUI is for a better comparison to the size.Thank you in advance.

Lapel pin (unofficial).  Key indicators are the wording around the insignia and the small size, relative to a DUI.  The division insignia would be larger, without wording.

This is a lapel pin for the 84th Infantry Division. As the image shows, their nickname was "Rail Splitters." IT would have been worn only with civilian attire.
