The Army Ordnance Corps Officer insignia, worn on each point of the uniform collar, displays the "shell and flame" which has been in use since 1832 and is considered to be the oldest branch insignia in the Army. The simplicity of the shell and flame harmonizes with the armament of days gone by, while the action it connotes is applicable with equal force to the weapons of today. After its adoption by the American Army, the design was used by the Artillery as well as the Ordnance until 1834 when the crossed cannon design was adopted by the Artillery Branch. This insignia is hallmarked by the U.S. Institute of Heraldry, approved for wear, and sold as a pair. The Army Ordnance Corps Officer Insignia is 100% USA made and comes with a double pin clutch back.
