These have screw caps on the back, they are round not pointy needle type, what exactly would they be called? They have US on one and a picture of 2 rifles crossing each other on the other one. Wondering how much they may be worth and how old they may be since there is not any writing on them. PLEASE if you have any information on these let us know, if will be GREATLY appreciated.

    They are US Army enlisted men's collar discs, and they date to around the First World War. there would be a hole in the stand-up collar of the uniform that the screw post fit through. The crossed rifles mean infantry, and the soldier would wear his crossed rifles on one collar and the US on his other collar. Although they are over 90 years old, this variety is fairly common, so most collectors already have an example in their collection. I would guess they might get you $20.

    They are definitely WWI, Probably 15-20 dollars. I wouldn't want to loose them though. I think they are very cool. Just think where they were, 90 some years ago. The original owner is long gone. There story is lost to history.
