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.
I have two of this exact pin, both exactly alike except for the maker's name on the back. Unfortunately, I do not know the date of the pin, but they appear to have been around for quite a while so my guess would be either Vietnam or WWII time frame. They are in good condition with no chips or major scratches, but they are slightly dingy. Probably a good polishing would brighten them up.
The card that it was attached to says "Ordnance School". It measures about 7/8ths inch side to side by 1 inch top to bottom. It is enameled and is red, orange, and black with gold colored highlights. It shows a cannon ball or bomb, and some type of lantern.
Again, I have two of these pins. They are both marked on the back. One is from Vanguard, the other from N.S. Meyer. If you have a preference on which pin you'd like, just let me know. The back has a double clutch holder.
This listing is for one pin only. If both are desired, just change the quantity to 2.
Although small, when wrapped it will exceed the postal limit of one quarter of an inch for normal envelope mailing. Delivery will be from California via USPS First Class Mail Package. Buyer to pay delivery charges of $3.99.
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.
