Great find. I really like their rating badges, but the prices are pretty steep when they go for sale.

Seldom seen anywhere for sale or trade are the rating badges of the United States Coast & Geodetic Survey. Here is a page from the 1926 "Regulations Governing the Uniforms of the U.S. Coast & Geodetic Survey." It so happens I have a number of USC&GS rates' illustrations in full colour showing variations of embroidery, these as I recall are mainly those rated as chief petty officers. http://www.usmilitar...tyle_emoticons/default/thumbsup.gif Sarge Booker of Tujunga, California ([email protected])

I had these several years before I was able to identify the time period.  These are the World War 1 period insignia for the standing collar.  The U. S. device looks identical to the Army Officer's collar device but you can see that the attachment method is different.  All three devices have a screw post with a distinctive nut for attaching.  The nut has 'THE VICTORY  PATENTED" stamped on it.  I actually had the U. S. device in my World War 1 Army collection until I realized that the other two devices were from the World War 1 period and that the attachment devices were the same.

I was able to purchase the personal belongings of Rear Admiral Allen Larue Powell who retired after 37 years with the Coast & Geodetic Survey, ESSA and NOAA.  He was transferred from the C&GS to serve with the Marine Corps during World War 2.  The C&GS emblem is in a picture frame and is just beautiful.  Admiral Powell was awarded the C&GS Atlantic War Zone ribbon for his service before joining the Marines, the WW2 Victory, Asiatic-Pacific and America Theater ribbons while in the Marines, and the Department of Commerce Gold Medal and Department of Commerce Silver Medal for service after the war.
