Hey all,

This is a new set that came in today, a set of Japanese made 70th Tank Battalion. The 70th Tank Battalion served under the 1st Cavalry Division in Korea. No markings on the reverse.

Set of 1st Cav Division DUIS. This set is screw back and are Japanese made. Sadly, the left DUI’s nut is wallowed.

Last one for today, this is a theatre made 1st Medical Squadron DUI with a screw post backing. The photo doesn’t do it justice as the red side is beautiful, especially in sunlight. While not a DUI, I thought this rare quilted patch of the squadron would be nice to show with it.

This is a NS Meyer produced 8th Engineers DUI with a broach back. The only major flaw is some damage to a horseshoe on the front but besides that a beautiful example.

Your US made DIs proves again they just don't make 'em like that any more - the tr red enamel and die work is still attractive.

The Japanese made PTC are sharp enough to be used as guitar picks. Nice tr green enamel on the 70ths.

Your quilted patch is gorgeous. Thanks for showing all.

Thank you for the kind words. I agree, the Japanese made DUIs are of great quality. The matching set of 70th Tank Battalion DUIs are some of my favorites, however the next DUI of the same unit is not as nice...

Another Japanese made 70th Tank Battalion. This one is not enamel, rather it features lime green paint. The color is not my favorite but to each their own. No markings on the back, however, there is some tarnish on the top left corner of the rim and reverse.

This is a Japanese made 1st Cav DUI with a beautiful yellow enamel. I thought I’d also showcase a Japanese made 1st Cav patch beside it. The main body is made of silk, with black felt and a gold bullion border.

This one is a bit different from the typical 1st Cav DUI. This DUI is on a M-1951 Pile cap which has been customized (the whole brim and ear covers have been sewn together on top, encasing the OD fabric minus a bald spot in the back). It is made from scrap metal and painted. Note how the horse head is mirrored on to the incorrect side. 
 

I have included photos of the DUI alone and of the actual cap.

Set of 1st Cav DUIs from the 1960’s occupation of Korea. These are from the Honest John rocket batteries attracted to the division. They are Japanese made and have no major flaws minus some slight discoloration.

 

Ive included a photo of an Honest John.

Nice, bullion DUIs are always a good pickup. 

Thanks Ray! I was really happy to get it. I'm also getting bullion DUIs for the other two regiments this week. Hopefully they come in soon!

Great stuff there.

 

Here's a topic that you may not of seen yet, this that shows a lot of Cav Leadership style Loops from Japan/South Korea, though some are not essentially leadership loops in some cases, as those re supposed to be Green.

A better look of a previously posted 1st Cav DUI. It may not look it but I promise that this is different than one above it lol! This is larger by a few 1/10’s of an inch.

If I may add this, a photo of Unauthorized Japanese Made 70th Tank Battalion DIs in use. Seanmc1114 originally posted it, I shopped it out to get an ID cause we were stumped on what it was for, and iIin1979 IDed it.

 

70th Tk Bn initially attached to the Cav, think starting in August 1950, it's assigned permanently or officially in November 1951. Unknown though where photo was taken, could be in Japan on R&R summer of 51?
