I ran across this, laying around never paid much attention to it. I tried to look for ones similar but nothing came up. The pin has good detail and appears to be made of sterling but lacks any marks. Is this pin unofficial or even real for that matter thanks

Very interesting badge, not sold in ships stores or ever worn by a US Navy sailor. Do a Goggle search and find out about this Company and it's interesting boats. Might be kind of rare.

Hello there is no company mark, it is not even marked sterling but appears it maybe this is definitely an oddball one

I was in a hurry before , a quick goggle search will show that Vosper was a british company that built PT boats in the US for use by england, ussr norway etc. They were not used by the US This pin would have been give by vosper to I suppose employees and friends of management. I did not do justice to the story of this interesting variant of this cool pin.
