National Geographic dated Dec 1 1944 shows this as "Officer not Member of Arm or Service, Specialist Reserve." In all my years of collecting, I've never encountered one of these. Jack

Thanks Jack, I picked up a nice pair. Unusual, and very nicely made.

I have a Quartermaster one similar to this that is punched out with the ring around the insignia. Were these for transitional Air Force units back around 1945-47? That was what I was told anyway. I've seen them for Infantry, Artillery, and I think Ordnance too. Your is pretty cool and likely rare.
