Yikes! So the pictured airborne officer collar brass below aren't WW2? I didn't know this and while photographing this group I noticed the 9 over M 1950s era hallmark on the 516th PIR brass that proves your findings. Wish I had know this 30 years ago.

Which means here is my only Gothic style lettering WW2 era officer airborne collar brass in my collection.

Here are a pair of 501st PIR block lettering officer airborne collar brass which I believe to be of WW2 era as it was part of an unnamed grouping with the plastic 501st PIR DUI.

Here is a pair of 506th PIR block numbering style collar brass where the numbers are soldered onto the bar and not above the bar yet in my opinion they are post war.

They are actually more silver in color that gold and here is the card they came upon.
