This OHIO pinback was an antique show pickup so no history behind it. I assumed this dates to around the Spanish American War but I don't really know. It's rather larger, slightly over 1/2 inch tall.

Hey BEAST, can you post them?

Sorry, when I looked again I saw my enlisted insignia didn’t have “Indiana” on them. Only the officer’s collar insignia is marked with the state abbreviation.

WOW! That is amazing! I LOVE seeing the Ohio stuff! That is kind of large. Is it just a large form of collar insignia? Or worn on the hat?

I'm pretty sure the OHIO pin was worn on the collar.

Nice devices guys. I wish I had some Kansas collar devices, but sadly no. The only ones I have are a matched set to 1st Nebraska and Ohio to Oliver Hinkle of the 8th Ohio.
