I really love these.... on the left a set by Tiffany, engraved with the mans name W.C. Miller. The heavy set on the right is from Bailey Banks and Biddle

From the days when US officers truly were from the privileged class; rank made by jewelers like Tiffany and BBB :rolleyes:

If I can add to the research of the Tiffany, engraved with the mans name W.C. Miller., William Charles Miller became the Commandant of the Citadel military academy 1926-31 and died in 1935, His WW1 service was with the  27th Infantry in Siberia.

Goes to show, if you know you are never going to get around to doing research justice on an item... pass it on to someone who will!
