New book is available.

If you'd like a copy, and you use eBay, here's the auction link. http://www.ebay.com/itm/182168248761?ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1555.l2649

 

Purchase the book, and before paying, send me an eBay request for an invoice and I'll deduct $5 as a USMF discount.

Dan,

 

Same thing...there was no option to request an invoice. I just ordered mine.

I do not profess to be a militaria expert, but I conduct as much research as I am capable of and then write about my findings.
Check out my blogs, The Veteran's Collection (general militaria) and Chevrons and Diamonds (military baseball)

Everyone will have to pay the full eBay auction price and I'll refund $5 as I did for Jay and 67Rally.

Thanks for the interest.

Here's one I picked up recently. The ship was commissioned in 1941 and decommissioned in 1968. So that gives a pretty narrow timeframe on the age of the badge. I'm thinking it was used in the 1960 to 1968 timeframe given the Large Burgess pin catch.

Nice Badge!! I would try and clean the verdigris of the badge before it gets to bad.

 

 

Thanks, it is pretty cool. Normally if I was keeping it I would clean it up. But it will be sold so I'm going to sell it as is and let the new owner decide how to proceed.

I got this badge as part of a WW2 US Navy Grouping for a sailor who served in the Pacific as well as Europe but not post war so I will have to assume it's WW2 period. No ship name or maker's marks but as noted it says U.S. Navy Police Petty Officer with the numeral 10. Brass construction with a soldered on pinback with C closure to the reverse measuring 1 5/8" in width by 1 7/8" in height. Here's the front:

And the reverse.

I went through this entire thread and saw several that had the same shield style but none that matched the working so perhaps it's one of a kind. Too bad it didn't come with an ID or a ship name to put it to too.
