1851 to 1959 Army of the United States Chevrons

Recommended Posts

:pinch: D.A.T.: Why, you have some nice tanker chevrons there too! When you scan again, can you lay them flat on the scanner glass plate? I try to scan everything directly when possible except in those I photograph before giving them away to other collectors, try to get them to scan them for you is like trying to open the mouth of a cat with a small bird locked in its powerful jaws! Thans again, D.A.T.! :pinch: Sarge Booker of Tujunga

 

Hi Sarge Booker, I didn't scan mine, that's just a picture. I have a scanner, but I got to hook it up, or should I say, my son or daughter, they taught me all I know about the computer, which ain't much, but at least I can post pictures! :lol:

Have you seen my Specialist Chevron collection (1920-1942) in my Tank Corps Thread?

:crying: PAT: No, have not seen your specialist chevron collection, can you show the website? Scanners are better unless something you want to be scanned can lay flat. Too bad we cannot show tank insignia of other nations here, the Spanish issue tank badge for Germans fighting on the side of Generalisimo Francisco Franco in 1936. Gave away some nice technician chevrons to a collector in Belgium and turned out he re-enacted and probably ruined those originals playing in a muddy field for God knows why? I've seen re-enactors wear actual World War One uniforms playing soldier, but seems most were not prior service, not sure many veterans cared to run around in poor weather? I wonder why no one seriously attempted to show the various tank chevrons of 1917 to 1920 and up to 1942 also? :blink:

Sarge Booker, here you go, my Tank Corps thread; http://www.usmilitariaforum.com/forums/ind...showtopic=39628

 

I know what you mean about people wearing original, rare, scarce, uniforms/insignia in reenacting, see alot of it over here, some of these people don't know or care, kinda hurts. :thumbdown:

:blink: D.A.T.: Quite right, those re-enactors might not care or know they destroy those older often hard-to-find chevrons, uniforms, etc. That is so sad! :crying:

:( This is a board full of 1907 to 1960s chevrons of the Army of the United States I won on eBay and postage and final bid was under Ten U.S. Dollars (US$10.00), believe it or not? Sometimes fortune will smile upon us, lucky me! :) Sarge Booker of Tujunga

:pinch: Salvage Sailor, thanks again! Great looking pillow sham, must say!

 

 

Which is part of this very interesting early 20th century pillow sham adorned with Chevrons, Cavalry Epaulets & a Cavalry cord. It was most likely made by a soldiers wife to brighten up their quarters on some pre-WWI post.

Some really nice chevrons on there. I've seen a number of these "pillow sham" collections. My theory is that Bannermans (or some other early militaria dealer) had these made up in an effort to better market and sell-off the huge hoards of surplus chevrons that were on hand.
