I am not completely sure why these are push pins and my previous ones are brooch type pins. Is there a significance to this? Also, on the lighter pins, 2 are marked sterling and one is not. I am so confused...

    These are more recent versions, your brooch type are earlier. Sterling ones could are usually found on older versions, but many insignia were made of sterling even after the brooches went to clutches. Also, just to make things more confusing, Some sterling insignia is still made as special order items.

    The black ones are subdued for wear on field uniforms. On the ACU folks wear cloth insignia, so these are most likely from the BDU era.
