Old United States Army Field Artillery Insignia Jewelry Pin
United States   Army   Military   Field Artillery   Insignia   Jewelry   Homefront   Sweetheart   Pin
The picture shows a view of this Old United States Army Field Artillery Insignia Jewelry Pin. It has a crossed cannon insignia. The year this was made is unknown. It may have been a homefront sweetheart pin. The pin is metal and there is an old plastic backing that resembles shell. Below here is some background information found online about the Field Artillery:

FIELD ARTILLERY

Branch Insignia: Two crossed field guns, gold color metal, 13/16 inch in height.

''Crossed cannons (field guns) for Artillery have been in continuous use since 1834, when they were placed on regimental colors, knapsacks, and as part of the cap insignia for Artillery officers. In 1901, the Artillery was divided into Coast and Field Artillery and the branch insignia was modified by the addition of a plain scarlet oval at the intersection of the cannons. The Field Artillery insignia, approved on 17 July 1902, had a gold wheel on the red oval, and the Coast Artillery had a gold projectile on the red oval. This red oval and wheel was replaced on 4 April 1907 by two field guns. It was superseded in 1957 by the consolidated Artillery insignia consisting of the crossed field guns surmounted by a missile. In 1968 when the Air Defense Artillery and the Field Artillery were authorized to have separate insignia, the former Field Artillery insignia was reinstated.''

The pin measures 2'' wide and is in good condition with some wear as pictured.
