Awesome Ike man! The 44th is one of those overlooked divisions that I really like seeing items from. You know me I go in for the obscure stuff for the most part lol

Two sets were the regs in the late 40's. Then they went back to just one set.

Yeah late 40's and into the early 50's all the cool kids were wearing two sets. To be more exact it was authorized for wear of two sets from 1946-1951 although not always done. Some guys opted for the single set of domed brass, or in some cases I have even seen the domed worn in doubles as well. Also of note is 1946 was when the collar brass were also ordered for wear on the Army enlisted khaki uniform.
