84th U.S. Army Tank Battalion DUI insignia pin. It has the ‘Paratus Semper Et Ubique’ motto along the bottom. It has the old type C pin clasp on the back. The pin measures just over 1 inch.
The dark spots that you see in my photo are reflections and are not part of the pin.
The back is marked ‘NS Meyer Inc. New York’, and has the number 9M. According to the Office of Heraldry that mark means it was made up until 1965. That type of number, combined with the C type closure was used as early as WWII.
The pins were part of a large collection of insignia pins that I purchased at an estate sale. They are attached to a small thin cardboard square. The 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. The previous owner wrote "84th Tank Batt” on the cardboard holders.
Buyer to pay USPS First Class Mail parcel delivery charges of $5.50. Shipping is from Arizona
SPECIAL NOTE about SHIPPING CHARGES: Twice yearly and again in November for the holiday season (so 3 times each year) the postal service increases shipping charges. Previously, shipping charges were based on weight and zip code. Now, the postal service has divided the United States in to 8 zones and all packages are charged by weight, size, and destination zone. This year's increases have added an additional 1.36 cents to up to $4.03 on packages. I try to absorb some of the new charges and haven't increased my shipping charges in three years. This year, unfortunately, I have to increase the shipping. I'll try to keep it reasonable and even absorb some of the changes when possible.
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 over payment.
INTERNATIONAL PURCHASES - No International purchases will be accepted. Due to claims that merchandise is not being received in various international countries (although Customs tracking verifies the delivery), I will no longer process international orders.
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.
