I have two officer collars with pin conversions, probably sweethearts but I did see a dealer selling a matching pair, perhaps easier to remove for laundering?

It is 6&1/4 by 8&1/4 inches, (16cm x 21cm).

The other one with the FS cap is much larger 7&1/2 x 9&1/2 inches (19cm x 24.5cm), which was a gift.
