These were more similar to officer's insignia, easier to read, and allowed a number to be placed on the disk. This might have been the 345th Infantry Regiment if worn with an infantry disk on the opposite collar or it might have been the 345th Field Artillery Regiment if paired with an artillery disk.
In 1917 the problem of supplying certain branches with left-sided disks having both regimental and company designations was solved by placing the regimental number on the right-sided U. disk and having the company letter on the left-sided branch disk.
For those who find that odd, I am only following established terminology that insignia collectors use. Forest Service, the Civilian Conservation Corps and others.
The problem with counting attaching parts is that some are permanently fixed to the back of the insignia. On October 8, 1907 the War Department issued Circular No.
In that way an observer looking at the pair would know from the right the regiment number and the left the company letter.
Disks also exist for the Army Reserve Corps featuring the letter R, either as a series USR in block or script with a larger central letter or as an R superimposed on the US as in the example shown.
The illustrations are examples and I am not showing all of the varieties that exist of each type. Categorizing early disks into a Type I and a Type II was originally the idea of Charles A.
When I call a disk a one-piece or two-piece only the front of the disk is considered and not the various attaching parts on the back of the insignia.
Although, I do not find this classification system totally satisfactory, it is understood by collectors and therefore I will use it.
The type classification is one by formulated collectors and not by the U. Edwards and the classification was extended and codified by James Mc Duff.
That way the same disk could be issued to all the Company A soldier in each regiment and the same numbered U. might be used by soldiers in different branches whose units had the same number.
Many branches did not try to display unit designations on disks at all; for example, ordnance, medical or quartermaster.
It was used by the Regular Army during the entire period.
