Officer insignia WWII


Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

I’m trying to restore the uniform of captain Robert Calder who was KIA. I would like to bring his restored uniform to his grave in France to honor him later this year.

 

Are these officer insignia original from WWII?

 

Thanks,

Marcel

+1 All good AND with period WWII Flat Faced Clutches. A lot of times this day and age you find WWII insignia with 60- to modern clutches only, the orinals lost long long time ago.

Well, it‘s hard to say without a hallmark, but they seem to have short pins so they could very well be from WWII. Don‘t know about the fasteners because you can‘t see the flat side.

Reforger check all the above photos from the top, Patent Flat Face.

The last pair of US insignia fasteners you can only see the back. I‘m assuming they are WWII „patent“ type fasteners, but without seeing the flat side it‘s hard to say. German post war clutch fasteners are also flat but have no marking, just as an example.

Yes, you're right, thought he posted the same U.S. badges as earlier.

Actually they are not the same badges as in the first post. You can see the difference if you look at the corrosion around the pins. But I would say they are probably from WWII as well (or at least from that time frame). I think the seller is pretty reliable in his descriptions (I'm quite certain I know who is offering them).
