These anodized collar devices are designed for wear on the collar points of the khaki shirt worn with the male Service Uniform or female overblouse. They were introduced in 2006 with the establishment of a single, year-round Service Uniform to take the place of several uniform variations, one of several refinements the Navy has made regarding collar-grade insignia for enlisted Sailors in the past two decades.

The 1998 edition of the United States Navy Uniform Regulations, authorized E-4 – E-6 personnel to wear pewter miniature collar devices on the collar tips of both the blue windbreaker and the blue all-weather coat. With the release of updated regulations 2005 to accommodate changes recommended by Task Force Uniform, both pewter and anodized (highly polished) miniature collar grade were authorized, but the pewter was given a wear-out date of 1 October 2005.

In addition to these collar devices for the Khaki shirt, current regulations also call for regularly sized (1.25”), anodized-only insignia to be worn on both collar points of the blue single-breasted All-Weather Coat. (Note: the single-breasted All Weather Coat is being phased out and will no longer be authorized for wear beginning 1 October 2020.)
