When did they start making and using these crests in general and the two shown here in peticular?

They are the 33th Armored Regiment crest and the 36th Armored Infantry Regiment badge.

We would need to see the backs to answer your Qs in more detail.

 

However, the 33rd is German made c. 1950 and the 36th Armored Infantry was approved in 1938. If it has a CB then it is later than WW 2 and may be for the resconstituted 36th Inf (1957).

Maybe about 15 years ago in Kaneohe at an antique junk shop I picked up just under two dozen of these along with about just as many 1st Armored Division woolies. The patches are long gone but I do still have a small pile of what I believe are 91st Armored Field Artillery Bn. DI's. In the original batch there where seven of the orange colored enameled scrolls. Now there is only a pair left. A set went to Jay Massoro when he was still around. I do believe that these DI's have be reproduced at one time. The ones shown are all original Theatre made insignia. Note that the pin fasteners on the two orange examples are different from the others.

 

Mahalo,

 

John

For your reference.

 

The 1950s 223rd Armored Infantry Battalion DI.

 

Two different example that were up on Ebay, one of them, the one without the card with description behind it, was recently sold by a member, I think Vzemke???. Anyway great examples of the type.
