725th Railways Operations Battalion DUI

Recommended Posts

Hello, I am wondering if I can get a second opinion on this unmarked 725th Railway Battalion DUI that I just purchased. I do not have it in hand yet but the seller provided some good photos that lead me to think it is the real deal, but I am not an expert and would like the opinion of someone more qualified then myself. Thank you for the help.

If these pictures are not detailed enough to make a judgement on I will likely have the pin in hand in about a week and can provide better pictures then.

The photos are plenty well detailed enough for me. This one is undoubtedly ORIGINAL. They are rare as I am sure you know, but you can buy this one with complete confidence.

Thank you so much for confirming that for me! I have seen them on the forum before and tried doing the appropriate research on ASMIC but that is not a fair substitute for experience or seeing one in person. I'm excited to see it in person, it was wildly misidentified on eBay and I nearly had a heart attack when I found it on a very broad search of pins on eBay.  I'm not sure I can accurately appreciate how rare it is until I have gone my collecting career without finding another come out of the woodwork but I am pretty confident it is the rarest of my growing DUI collection.

I just got the Pin in the mail today and I thought I would share a better picture of it because it is more beautiful in person then in the seller's pictures where it appears dark. I am thrilled to add this one to my collection as a good example of a locally made CBI insignia. 

 

Thanks again Allen for helping me with information about this pin.
