It has been a short time since I started collecting US items and feel like a child lost in the woods. My favorite items are anything to do with the 113th Calvary and since I have a nice uniform I am wanting to restore I have been looking for a matched set of DIs for the jacket. I have found some screw back and a couple of pin back ones but no pairs.

 

During my searches I started looking at some of the other units DIs and thought they would be nice to have and picked up a few. I really like the Tank Destroyer Battalion DUIs even though they are a little pricey they are worth it.

These are both marked Sterling and nothing else.

Very nice, DUI's can be addictive and I feel like they can be easily overlooked. Generally when they are marked sterling that is a good indication that it is wartime construction because the pins would be made out of sterling to preserve more important war materials.

Thanks for the comment and I agree they can be addictive. They are something so small yet so unique especially the ones for units that no longer exist. I had heard that most that are marked sterling were made out of it which I'm sure that is why the prices are slightly higher than ones not marked sterling.
