Nice score, congratulations. 

 

Out of curiosity, do these happen to have a number handwritten on the back? Many of mine do, and I have always thought that it might be an old price or surplus store price.

These are the 1912 style chevrons used until about 1922 (I think) when the dress ranks were narrowed down to 3 inches
