Bearmon,

Aloha Firefighter,

 

That may be a knock off made by 'the usual suspects'.  Also note that it's mispelled, CATAWSA rather than CATAWBA.  I may have an original around here somewhere to compare.

Hi Salvage. I thought it might be, only after I received it. Didn’t notice the misspelled name, great catch. I thought the design was cool. Love to see an original.

In service 1944 to 1979 - WWII, Korea, Vietnam (She was my sister ship and I had orders to report aboard for her last WESTPAC when GRASP was decommissioned in 1978 but I was sent to BOLSTER at the last minute as they were short handed and needed an experienced Radarman/OS)

 

Her Vietnam Era patch - She earned nine campaign stars for Vietnam service with the BWN & Salvage forces
