I recently purchased this lot of military pins, I have an idea of what some of them are, but thought I would ask for a second opinion.
The full photo album is here including close-ups as I can only post two in this thread. - http:/
There are 11 total. I will include pictures. There are 7 gold pins with crossed swords, they have letters on them from A - D and there are two, one with the number 9 and the other with the # 6.
There is one with two guns crossed.
There are two smaller pins, one says "U.S." - on the back it is marked N.S. Meyers INC N.Y.C. and on the right side it says Meyers with an arrow under it and then Metals under that.
The second pin I think is an Aviators Machinist Pin? It says "Acid Test" on the back, the wings are gold and the propeller is silver.
The questions I have about these pins:
Are they original?
What era/war were they issued?
Could some of them be real gold? (the crossed sword pins look like they could be)
Any idea on value?
What do the letters/numbers mean?
Any information would be greatly appreciated!
