Ruptured Duck Lapel Pin
The pin is a small gold-plated brass emblem 7/16 inches high by 3/4 inches wide.
Honorable Service Lapel Pin - World War II Honorable Discharge Pin - was a token of appreciation given to every American service member who was discharged during and after World War II for service between September 1939 and December 1946. This “Badge of Service,” nicknamed “Ruptured Duck,” was designed by Anthony de Franisci for the War Department. The design consists of an eagle perched within a ring and is worn as a civilian suit lapel button. This same design was used as a cloth insignia (1-1/2 inches high by 3 inches wide for wear on the uniform) for all who were permitted to wear their uniform after being discharged.
