Hello everyone, I've got this 3rd Cavalry Regiment DIU with very faint raised NS Meyer Inc markings combined with a raised larger shield but no New York (or N.Y.C.) markings. Does anyone have a clue as to what era this DUI belongs? All thoughts are appreciated.

More than likely an early 50s Meyer, the NYC perhaps worn down.

I would guess that it is WW II era, I am not sure tho I have been told the pin backs were mostly used prior to 1950

Pin Backs DIs are to be seen in the 50s post 1954, several manufactures for whatever reason continued to make theirs with pin back attachments, while conversely making some with clutch backs.

Here's one example, a Post 1954 Pin Back for the Army Reserve's 322nd FA BN, 83rd Inf Div, made by A. J. Dennision who's 1954-65 hallmark code was 5D.

And a Pin Back one from NS Meyer for the 53rd FA BN, 6th Inf Div with it's 1954-65 double shield, second shield 9M.
