Nice job, the cross cannons might be a cuff link? The large cent is in great shape copper does not hold up well...

When the going gets wierd, the wierd turn pro....
The crossed cannon pin is an Army Coastal Artillery collar disc, yours looks to be a "Type 3", and would date from 1937-43.
Anyone else notice a lot of collar discs are turning up lately? I just started a thread for them in General Discussion, would you mind reposting the pic there?
