Artillery Officer Collar Device (Pair)
Branch Insignia: Two crossed field guns, gold color metal, thirteen-sixteenth inch in height.
Crossed cannons (field guns) for Artillery have been in continuous use since 1834. 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 It was superseded in 1957 by the consolidated Artillery insignia consisting of the crossed field guns surmounted by a missile.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.
Our Artillery Officer Collar Device is a regulation, full size, polished brass Branch Insignia. Collar devices sold in pairs. This is the same device that is supplied to the U.S. Army, Army National Guard, Army Reserve units, and sold in the Army Post Exchanges. This device would be a great gift idea and a wonderful addition to your military collection.
