One of the last hallmarks used by NS Meyer was M22. This SCUBA badge dates from around 1984 when I received it. This style badge is no longer used in the Special Forces community and has been replaced by the Combat Diver Badge with crossed daggers.

Hi,

does anyone know when N.S. Meyer was incorporated? Knowing when 'INC.' was added to their trademark and hallmarks would narrow down the ages of their wings quite a bit.

cheers, John

With thanks from River Rat on the MWR forum:

 

N. S. Meyer, Inc. filed as a Domestic Business Corporation in the State of New York on Tuesday, February 24, 1920 and is approximately ninety-nine years old, according to public records filed with New York Department of State.

 

I replied that the 1920 date is helpful in a way, but the dies used for some insignia may have been used for a long time and not updated as to the company's status. I'll have to look at my wings and other Meyer badges and see how it goes.

I found interesting Army Basic Parachutist Badge marked N.S. MEYER, INC. N. Y. with two shields / 9M. The badge is regular size, shields are large. I have never seen such before.

At a flea market I saw what appears to be (according to Campbell's "Aviation Badges, Wings, and Insignia") an Air Service Non-Commissioned Officer hat insignia with stamped (engraved?) N.S. MEYER, INC and NEW YORK underneath. Campbell states it had to have been made after July 1918, "... but such insignia were discarded in December 1917". So how can that be if Meyer incorporated in 1920?
