  1. Pamcraft marked 1930era Aviation Ordnanceman 1st class rating badge
  2. Yeah, guessing this one falls into the rates that were made before they were authorized by regs. Working on a riker mount with such rates and strikers. He had this listed as a "US Navy 1st Class Petty Steam Propulsionman Rate, WWII, World War II, WW2". Not sure were he got that info at.
  3. Yes Justin you got it. In 1921 the Signalman rating badge came out and i am guessing the coast coast guard would of use that insignia in 1921 also. Prior to 1921 there was a distinguishing mark only in use for the navy for Quartermasters qualified as Signalmen.
  4. Snag this off ebay this past weekend. I admit i had to look this one up but do know the i.d.. Thought i would see if others could i.d. it first. At first glance it looks like a old 1st class signalman, but take a closer look to insignia, you see this has staff points on the flag posts. The time frame is 1915-1920 Jason
  5. yes, took a break and sold off most of my uniform collection. Have the insignia collection yet and actually bought a rate the other week. So I guess I am back buying rating badges that I need.
  6. Wish I had seen this sooner, have not been looking for a while until the other week.
  7. The one on right could also be a ww2 rate. Special Artificer which was around during war 2 then became what sigs had said. I finally found a cpo in grey.
  8. I really like the aviation green T rating, but I think the job title is another one. Maybe a teacher/instructor in aerial gunnery. The only reason I am thinking this is the rating badge is a ww2 one with the red chevrons. If it was 1948 it would have blue chevrons. I actually think they went to the blue chevrons prior to the end of ww2. None the less nice rate.
  9. Thought i add a picture of the uniform restored. sorry for bad pic
  10. Glad a forum member bought this. I have many more that i will be selling soon.
  11. Found this on ancestry, Pa pension records can be real good.
  12. No one? I order a navy squadron patch about two weeks ago and didn't come yet or heard anything from him. Is this normal from this seller?
