    I’ve been looking for some WWII US Army Chief Warrant Officer rank insignias recently. I recently snagged a couple of listings off of eBay and am looking forward to getting them in hand.

    These will be used for my WWII Living History Impression as well as my personal collection.

    Yes, most of the ones in my collection are pinback. Here’s the backs of them.

    I just purchased a couple more with a Warrant collar brass.

    I’m not sure if there’s a maker’s mark on the Warrant collar brass.

    I’m wondering if you’ve even seen AAF Blue CWO pins like these?

    I haven’t seen anything like these before. They’re advertised as WWII USAAF CWO.
