Help with a USAAF Badge


Recommended Posts

Could I have some help with this Gilt  USAAF Badge Please? The 'E' in E-Pluribus Unum is on the folded part of the Scroll. I cannot find another like this compare it to.

It is 32mm x32mm. No Makers name.

Many thanks.

Hi, it looks like you have a common Army Enlisted hat badge that's missing the ~40mm diameter round backplate.

Many thanks Mike.

Just couldnt find an image of one with the 'E' on the small scroll section.

Now I see exactly what you are referring too. I had a look at a few of mine and the "E" varies in location from being on the left-most separate scroll/ribbon (like your example) or combined as "E. PLURIBUS". I have one example where the E appears to be missing altogether. I'd put the variations down to different manufacturers and their dies.
