This 12th Infantry DUI insignia pin was part of a large collection of over 700 pins that I purchased at an estate sale.
The previous owner was an avid military memorabilia collector. His main focus was on items from WWII and Vietnam, but would also pick up items from other time frames if they were rare or unusual.
The pin 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 pin is blue, white, red, and silver in color. It measures 1.25 by 1 inch. It is marked on back with "Vanguard N.Y. 1V".
Buyer to pay USPS First Class Mail parcel delivery charges of $4.15. Shipping is from Nevada.
SHIPPING COST INFO:
Every January the postal service increases shipping charges. Sellers have already been notified that this January the cost of shipping will increase between 6% and 10%. I try to absorb some of the new charges but that's getting harder with each increase.
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. 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.
International shipping charges will also take 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.
