CPO in the U.S. Coast and Geodetic Survey. Don't have dates of usage at my fingertips, but this design was in use during WWII..

Thanks. I normally can do a google search and find these badges, but didn't with this one. Everyone's help is always appreciated.

what exactly does the hallmark say on the reverse?  That will help in dating it.

Looks 60-70's  WW2 would have had a pin w/roller clasp

It's a Gemsco acid test example with the screw post type of attachment.  I would place it circa 1947 and probably towards the end of enlisted personnel serving in the C&GS.  Wharf posted a similar example with the pin back type of attachment in the other thread on these badges.  Wharf's example would be WW2 and prior to the change over to the screw post examples.

Just adding a link for ease of reference here:  http://www.usmilitar...o-cap-insignia/

 

Page two has the information more relevant to this example shown here.
