This pin was part of a large lot of over 700 military DUI DI insignia pins purchased at an estate sale. The seller was an avid collector of military items and he specialized in the WWII and Vietnam era.
When I obtained it, it was attached to a small piece of cardboard where the past owner had written "American Defense WWII?". I'm not sure why he added the question mark (?) after WWII. I tried to research the pin, but could find little info, so I'm not sure if it's from the WWII time frame or not.
It measures 3/4 inch across by 1-1/8th inch tall. It is gold in color with a red, blue, and yellow enameled top area. It has the motto of "American Defense" on the bottom portion. The back is unmarked, but there is an outline of a small box that may have the maker's info listed. The back has a double clutch holder.
You will receive the actual pin that you see in my photo.
Although small, when wrapped it will exceed the postal limit of one quarter of an inch for normal envelope mailing. Delivery will be via USPS First Class Mail Package from Nevada. Buyer to pay delivery charges of $4.15.
SHIPPING CHARGE INFO:
I do combine shipping on multiple items purchased. However, my web host is not set up to calculate multiple item shipping costs. At checkout, you will be charged full shipping price on each item purchased and I will refund the appropriate amount of overpayment. If you are uncomfortable with that, you can send me an email with your zip code and stating which items you'll be purchasing and I'll calculate the correct combined shipping charges and send you a custom invoice.
Also, every January the postal service increases shipping charges. This year, many price increases were a bit steep with some package categories adding as much as a dollar on to an already high shipping charge. I try to absorb some of the new charges but that's getting harder with each increase.
International shipping charges also took a tremendous leap. International shipping will now depend on the country. Buyer must contact seller for international shipping charges before making a purchase. Seller reserves the right to void any international transactions where contact has not been made prior to purchasing.
All items in my listings come from either estate or garage sales. I do not know if they came from homes where smoking or pets were present. All items are sold in the same condition as when I received them.
