In 1975 the US Navy celebrated it's 200th Birthday which continued into the 1976 United States of America Bicentennial. During this time period all commissioned USN vessels flew the 'Don't Tread On Me' Snake Jack on the bows of our ships and many commands made patches to commemorate the Bicentennial.
These are from my personal collection that I picked up during my service days circa 1975-1976 plus others I've collected in subsequent years. Feel free to add your own examples to the topic.
First up, this is the hard to find USN 200th Birthday 1775-1975 patch made by Gemsco in gold
