I have tried to figure out a value to these pins and can't find a couple of them anywhere. I am not trying to solicit or sell them but if there is no value I am going to allow the kids to play with them that is other than the WW II bullet

    They are a couple of dollars each.

    The one with the eagle with outstretched wings is an Honorable Discharge lapel pin. The insignia was known as the "ruptured duck" and it was worn by discharged veterans of WW2.

    The "US" is an Army officers pin-- goes on the opposite lapel from the branch insignia.

    The small eagle and shield looks like part of a sweetheart item-- necklace or charm. It is probably the nicest item in the group.

    Thank you very much for your help folks. I guess I am alright allowing my boys to play with them without risking any valued item. Don't get me wrong they are a keepsake but if their value is small I won't get so worried. Thanks again
