I'm interesting in cobbling together a display of navy rates from WW2.  Can anyone recommend a website, book, or maybe a thread on the this forum that lays them concisely out with depictions.  Thank you.

The most accurate and correct book you can get. Anyone who collects USN insignia MUST HAVE this book! Mr. Stacey is a member of this forum. His book is available on Amazon.

Agreed, that is the book to get. You can also purchase directly from American Society of Military Insignia Collectors (ASMIC): http://www.asmic.org/pubs.aspx
