...HOLDS NAZI SUBMARINE IN HIS TENTACLES STERLING PIN" was the description on this little piece. Complete with numbered pin and sterling on reverse.

 

I was the only bidder. In my experience the pins are harder to find that the patches. Always wanted one. Sometimes you get lucky.

Interesting, never seen or heard of one before. 

 

Who / which unit wore this or gave it out? Is that known at all?

 

Thanks!

It is the unofficial insignia of the US Navy Net Tender service.

Nice RARE pin. Do you have a picture of the back? I’m sure your mailbox is full. LoL
May I ask how much you got it for?

Great pick up Eric! Very rare. One sold 4 months ago for under $100 on Ebay with proper indentification and in proper category. I think 20 people figured it would go for $400-600 so no one really bid on it. 

 

These are seldom seen. Congrats!
