The '221' marked emblem is definitely an Officer's Dress Hat badge and the 'serial' number denotes a manufacturer and approved pattern, usually found as Bob stated on post-1955 emblems. The design however, appears to be the M1937 pattern, usually found on H-H marked pieces, with the wide wings and spread legs. This may be a "transition" piece, made just as Regs changed in the mid-50s.
P.S. Posted this just as Darrell posted his. My comments are not intended to rebutt his observations. Go Darrell! S/F-BG
