1st U.S. Army Aviation Regiment Super Primum Insignia Pin, DUI. When I obtained it, it was attached to a small homemade cardboard square. Written on the cardboard it says "1st Aviation Reg" and "Vietnam". That would have been written by a past owner.
The pin measures about 1-1/8th inch. The front has the motto of "Super Primum". The back is marked in raised lettering "N.S. Meyer Inc. New York". Also on the back are 2 shields. The shield on the left is the Meyer shield, the shield on the right has the number 22 over the letter M. The back has a double clutch holder.
The colors are very vibrant. There are some faint tiny scratches.
Researching this pin, I did find a couple of others with the same markings in the same order on the back. Those listings stated the pins to be from the Vietnam time frame. I also saw others, but the order of the shields were reversed and those listings stated 1990s time frame.
I obtained a large lot of pins recently at an estate sale of a man who was a very serious pin collector. I was told he served in Vietnam so that was the time frame he specialized in but that he also collected pins from as early as WWI, WWII, and Korean War time frames.
This gentleman is moving into an assisted living facility, so his estate is being liquidated. The large lot of pins that I purchased consisted of 723 pins that he collected. I will list them several at a time in between my normal estate sale finds. If there is a particular unit's pin that you are searching for, just let me know because there's a good chance I'll have it.
You will receive the actual pin that you see in my photo.
