WWII Gold Ruptured Duck Lapel Button- Pair

(725HWS-C)

LIMITED ITEM. SURPLUS - PREVIOUSLY OWNED - Excellent ConditionOnce they are gone, we may not get any more. Sold AS IS (NON-REFUNDABLE)

Interested in WWII Era history, well then this is a good find.  Per Wikipedia: The Honorable Service Lapel Button, sometimes called the Honorable Service Lapel Pin, was awarded to United States military service members who were discharged under honorable conditions during World War II. Even though the button depicts an eagle, the design of the eagle itself seems to depict its breast bursting through the button as though it has ruptured, and the eagle was believed by some to have been so poorly designed as to resemble a duck rather than an eagle; the term "ruptured duck" was coined to refer to it on that basis.  Great addition to any anybody's collection.
