Nice!

 

As a former 1SG, this is one of my areas of collecting. I'll try to get some photos up in the next day or two.

Here are some quick photos of my First Sergeant insignia collection.

 

First up is an assortment of pins and a matchbook cover:

An assortment of 2-rocker sleeve insignia. I suspect the bottom left stripes are repro.

An assortment of 3-rocker WWII-era stripes.

 

I am still looking for a set of felt-on-felt 3-rocker First Sergeant stripes. I am told they exist, but have never seen any.

And finally, an assortment from approximately the Spanish-American War era through WWI.

 

I'd love to have some Civil War First Sergeant stripes, but my bank account tells me I can't have them.

 

I should also mention that I have decided to only collect infantry stripes. There are lots of nice artillery, cavalry, etc. stripes out there, but I can't afford to buy them all.

 

I hope you enjoyed all of these!

The top left chevron in photo #1 is for an Infantry Company Supply Sergeant.

You've got some nice chevrons there. I really like the variations on the top kick chevrons thru the years! The Ordnance Sgt. chevrons in #14 are nice too!
