Need assistance to I.D hat badge or Breast Badge?


Recommended Posts

Have researched this badge and cannot find in the Army insignia encyclopedia or other on line references. I am most likely missing it but need assistance to identify this double ring pin back U.S. Army hat or possibly breast badge? Any assistance would be appreciated.

Appears to have some age so If Air Force, Being Bronze would most likely be USAAF. Possibly a Higher ranking staff officer, Aide, DC assigned, something similar?

I believe this is a sweetheart item. I've seen several of them over the years but never seen anything to indicate it's an official badge. They're very well made.

Looking for older Virginia Military Institute items: insignia, uniforms, cadet sabers, documents, and groupings belonging to VMI alumni.

Also interested in Virginia Reserve Militia (VRM) uniforms and insignia, or other items of general Virginia interest.

Could be as I am sure they came in all shapes and sizes but over 2" might be quite large for a sweetheart item?
