pre & WWII Navy cap tally - Real or what?


Recommended Posts

In looking for an example of a CS...which the "C" may technically be Collier...I found another one of these I forgot about...a USAS...note the photo is originally labeled Auxiliary Ship, but archived as a USS...am going to have do some more digging...I think I remember seeing a USAS cap tally...but I can't fully remember nor know if I have a picture of it.

The Bull Ships section?

I have a Navy Good Conduct to a sailor that served aboard USS Bullwheel . However, I don't believe they had a cap tally. :D

If it is of any help..

 

The Revenue Cutter Service uniform regs of 1891 note the cap tally was USRS and the name of the cutter in 1/2' block letters.

The early 1900 RCS uniform regs called for USS and the name of the cutter. ( Probably a carry over from SpanAm war.)

A correction later in the summer of 1900 returned to USRS and the name of the cutter.

The 1908 RCS uniform regs called for USRC and the name of the cutter.

 

The CG historians office list of cutters does not contain the WYANDOTTE or PASSAIC.

Interesting research everyone. 
I picked up a wooden block (for block and tackle) stamped "USRS" last year. Would like to think it's from the Revenue Cutter Service. Other option would be "US Receiving Ship" but "US Receiving Ship" isn't really an organization, like the Revenue Cutter Service was, hence less chance for equipment from a Receiving Ship to be marked USRS?

In the case of the two USRS marked tallies in this post, they both appear to stand for "US Receiving Ship."

The USS Wyandotte was a Civil War era monitor that was used as a Receiving Ship from 1879-1885. 
The USS Passaic was a Civil War era monitor used as a Receiving Ship from 1878-1882. 
Both vessels were Receiving Ships in Washington, D.C.
