Picked up this small grouping from retired Lt.Col. who flew as WSO in Vietnam and am looking for info on the following:

The gold colored Weasel pin in center of case, the square Weasel pin, and the hallmark on the B-58 Hustler pin.

Any info is appreciated.

Wasn't there just a thread not too long ago on a patch with the same illustration as the pin? IIRC the patch was from the manufacturer of the Shrike missile. Also can't really see the hallmark but it looks vaguely familiar.

The design was used by the 14th & 6010th WW SQ's

I believe the arrowhead was given out by Republic Aviation to those who qualified in the '105.
