I have 2 AAMC collars with this type of fitting. Can anyone shed any light on it?

Hi Derek, I believe it's been converted to a ladies hat pin. I had a QVC Victorian Cadet badge once with the same thing and have seen others. A long steel pin was soldered into the socket to be pushed through the hat and hair.
