15th U.S. Army Infantry "CAN DO" DUI Insignia Pin. The famous Medal of Honor recipient Audrey Murphy was in the 15th.
The pin measures 1 and 1/8th by 7/8ths inch. Base color is blue with gold and white highlights. The bottom has a gold scroll inscribed "CAN DO". The previous owner wrote "15th Inf" on the cardboard that the piece is attached to. It has double clutch holders on back.
The pin is part of a large collection of insignia pins that I purchased at an estate sale. It is attached to a small thin cardboard square. Any writing on the cardboard was put there by the previous owner and that's great because I can't imagine how long it would take me to look up and obtain information on over 700 pins. I'm using his information. He was the expert, so hopefully the information is correct.
The back is marked with a letter 'P" inside a circle. Researching online, I found info stating that hallmark to belong to Carl Poellath of Germany. The history on the Carl Poellath company states they began venturing into military badges during the 1st World War, and ended badge production during WWII. Going by that, this insignia pin would be from the WWI to WWII time frame.
