26th U.S. Army Signal Battalion DUI insignia pin. The pin measures roughly one inch. It has the motto of "Weather or Not". It is marked on the back "E23 Made in U.S.A.". According to the Office of Heraldry that mark is from the time frame of 1965 to 1978 which would put it around the Vietnam War time.
The pin has double clutch holders on the back. All enamel and metal pieces are present with no chips or cracks.
You'll notice in the orange areas of the pin that there are black marks. I can't determine if that's part of the paint, giving it a marbled look, or if there was something splashed on the pin.
Also, sorry about all the reflections.
The pin is part of a large collection of insignia pins that I purchased at an estate sale. It is 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 "26th Signal BN" on the cardboard holder. I'm using his information. He was the expert, so hopefully the information is correct.
