The insignia for this depot was created by Disney artist Hank Porter in the summer of 1944.

Very cool, Dave. I have always been interested in the NSD Oakland as it was the factory shipping destination for the Smith & Wesson Victory Model revolvers that were distributed from there to Naval and Marine units heading to the PTO. the Victory is a major collecting interest of mine.

Thanks for the post.

Charlie

You're welcome Charlie.

A friend of mine owns the original pencil art for the insignia and I own a matchbook cover featuring the design. I'll be posting both of these items in the near future.
