WW2 NAVY CPO RATES DISPLAY (ALL MOST DONE)


Recommended Posts

Hi,

I have 161 navy cpo rates from ww2 on this display(40X60). The frame should be here by Tuesday, will take another pic when it comes.

 

I have at least one example of every cpo during ww2 except for the letter rates. I did not have the room and do not have a cpo of every letter. I hope you guys like this, it's more impressive in person.

Lot of work to get those together Jason. Glad to see it in a format where you can enjoy.

Thanks for the replies guys. This beats having them in binders were you can not view them. Maybe down the road I will do a ALL bullion display. But I may be running out of wall space.

Nice collection. What do you have it insured for?

Yeah,

My insurance agent has been wanting me to up my coverage. LOL But the most expensive rate on that display is the white cpo Airship rigger. I've seen more bullion examples than non bullion.

Not only is it great to see all those badges together, but from a distance the colors and pattern look really cool, like some kind of "pop art." Outstanding, thanks for posting!

Excellent display,Jason! It's great that you can look at them all of the time (as opposed to my display method- box of rates in dark corner of the basement). Did you replace your 80 inch High Def TV on the wall with that frame?

Thanks guys!

 

Kurt I would like to do more but don't think I will have the wall space. This beats having them in pages store in binders.

I may do a bullion one yet, maybe all era's.

Auggie,

I don't really have no stories. A lot of them were bought thru ebay. Probably been collecting navy rates off and on for the last 20++ years. Also found a lot at flea markets and shows.

 

The CPO airship rigger in white I knew a friend had after talking with him thru emails., I just had to offer a amount he could not refuse. Those of you who knew the late John Helvey had one. He got his from the guy I got mine from. He found two of them in the early 80's at a flea market. That's probably the only story I have.

I totally agree with the earlier comment regarding seeing more bullion examples of the CPO Airship Rigger rate than non-bullion. I have three bullion examples but have never had the opportunity to try to purchase a non-bullion one. They just almost do not exist. Undoubtedly, one of the rarest CPO Navy rates. I loved seeing the one in this collection.

Always looking for USN WW2 era Bullion Chief Petty Officer Rates, any Chief Petty Officer Airship Rigger Rates, Liberty Cuffs, WW2 USMC Insignia and Distinguishing Marks, and WW2 Civil Defense and Civil Air Patrol Insignia
