Pinback "Overcoat Sized" Colonel Insignia


Recommended Posts

I just picked up an oversized pinback colonel insignia by N.S. Meyer; it's shown below along with a more recent standard size eagle.

I remember reading somewhere (maybe this forum, but I can't find it now) that these were supposedly made to go on the overcoat. Does anyone have documentation to support this or is it just a collector theory? How common are they? I can't say I've run across one before. If anyone has the matching right-facing eagle or a matched set for sale, please let me know!

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.

Still looking for a matching right facing overcoat-sized eagle to complete this set.

I have this oversize col Insignia also, made by luxemberg. Measures over 2 inches lenth. It's the nicest col eagle I've ever seen. Really heavy silver. 019a328dd95ea85f713ce36214f66fab.jpg483e5695e3890e6485898ba32777c430.jpg
