    I made a trade the other day, picked up some WWII pieces to expand that aspect of my collection.

    The trade was with a friend, and not too long ago, neither of us knew the other was a collector.  Turns out we both had things the other had been looking for, and more items that would be appreciated.  He knew I'd been in 1AD for the last part of my military career, and included this with the trade package:

    Representation of the 1st Armored Division shoulder sleeve insignia, with "Italy" and "Africa" at the sides, likely indicating a connection to the unit's invasion landings history.

    Same eagle insignia on both sides, though more worn on one side than the other.  Does anyone have a reference that I could look up the meaning of the rest of the sculpt?  To me, it looks like the eagle is standing on crossed artillery cannons which are in turn situated above a star and inverted chevron.

    Not sure of the correct terminology here, trademark maybe?  "H.J.Co" - my guess is Herff-Jones Company.
