Insignia DUI pin for the 3rd Armored Cavalry Regiment. Originally designed for the 3rd Cavalry Regiment on November 25, 1922 and was redesigned for the 3rd Armored Cavalry Regiment on December 18, 1951.
Green and gold in color measuring about 1 and 3/8ths inches across by 1 and 1/8th inch tall. Enamel and metal. Featured in the center is a trumpet with the mouthpiece up. There is a cord or sash wrapped on the trumpet. To the left of the trumpet is the word "Brave", to the right is the word "Rifles", and underneath is the number 3. The back has a double clutch holder. The pin is in excellent condition.
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, but unfortunately I can't narrow down the date on this pin. The past owner wrote "3rd Armored Cav" on the card it is attached to.
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. Buyer to pay delivery charges of $4.15.
SHIPPING COST INFO:
I do combine shipping on multiple items purchased as long as all items can safely fit into a single box. 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.
