Cap Badges.

I started this thread for cap badges, collar insignia, lapel pins... important worn items that were not awards, but still indicative of service.

The first item is a Rakosi period (1949-1956) armed forces service cap badge. The army wore this just above the "sweat band" through 1953, then, in 1954 it was worn on the "sweat band". The Air Force always wore it on the sweat band with the wings and star emblem above. The Navy wore it above the "tally" on the "Donald Duck" hat. Brass and hot enamel. Hard to come by.
