Picked up this Amcraft marked officer's cap device at the flea market. It does not appear to have metal prongs like most. I first thought they had snapped off, but I don't see evidence of that.  Is this unusual?

I believe he's referring to the two pins on the tips of the wings that keep the badge from spinning.  I can't say I've ever seen a cap badge without them so I'd call it a little unusual.  Could be a quality control error - I can't see any reason to deliberately leave them off.

Yes, I meant the pins on each of the wings.  Hmmmm.....
