My son found these in an attic of a home that he bought. Can somebody identify these items?

    All appear to be WW1 era.

    First three are Officer collar insignia (pin back): Medical Corps, Quartermaster, Ordnance.

    Next two are Enlisted (screw back): Ordnance and Artillery.

    the second one with eagle, sword and key crossed is from ww1 symbol is Quartermaster Corp. of US Army 1896-1921. I have an iron bed with this same emblem on the head and foot of bed. I googled it and found out this information.

    Finance Corps handles the money for the Army.

    Quartermaster Corps focus is logistics (supply acquisition and distribution management).

    The old Army Pay Dept. was under the QMC for a brief period.
