Wow with the M22 shield those stars apparently are from the mid to late-sh 60s right, when they still made sterling and not the 1/20 Silver Filled that began to be seen.

One of the last hallmarks used by NS Meyer was M22. This SCUBA badge dates from around 1984 when I received it. This style badge is no longer used in the Special Forces community and has been replaced by the Combat Diver Badge with crossed daggers.

Hi,

does anyone know when N.S. Meyer was incorporated? Knowing when 'INC.' was added to their trademark and hallmarks  would narrow down the ages of their wings quite a bit.

cheers, John

With thanks from River Rat on the MWR forum:

 

N. S. Meyer, Inc. filed as a Domestic Business Corporation in the State of New York on Tuesday, February 24, 1920 and is approximately ninety-nine years old, according to public records filed with New York Department of State.

 

I replied that the 1920 date is helpful in a way, but the dies used for some insignia may have been used for a long time and not updated as to the company's status. I'll have to look at my wings and other Meyer badges and see how it goes.

What does the "USMC 97" stand for?


USMC garrison cap size O-2 bar.  Happy New Year everyone!  Thanks, Al.
