Very, very nice! On the NS Meyer Senior badge does the hallmark shield have 9 or 22?
I've expanded my collection a little. The bullion missile badges have always been my favorites especially those made in Japan. I found a senior missile operations bullion badge and added it to the collection (unknown manufacturer).
Its marked 9
Awesome, so it's date range is mid 50's to mid 60's. You probably have already seen the N.S. Meyer forum topic but just incase: http://www.usmilitariaforum.com/forums/index.php?/topic/16492-ns-meyer/
Yes I have seen that topic before.I really like these as a sub collection ,but sorta hard to find good examples.
Hey thought I share this new display with you.Found the display case on sale while at Michaels with my Girlfriend today,so went ahead and bought it along with some acid free foam board, already had the red material. Took off the clutchs so that the pins will go into the foam board,this way they don't move around. Cant wait till I can fill it up with more pins. Sorry for the picture quality. Jay
Jay, excellent USAF Missile Badge display case.
I sure do like those bullion pocket rockets. Also like the red back ground display shown above. I have most of my metal insignia displayed on red. It sure makes them "pop".
Thanks for the compliments guys!!
I know I've referenced Retired Major Greg Ogletree, USAF before another former missile officer, and very well known in the missile field He belongs to the Association of Air Force Missileers. Great guy and very knowledgeable about the USAF missile field. He put together a history of the USAF Missile badge in pdf form and the last 2 or 3 pages has some very good notes for collectors. Here is the link: http://afmissileers.com/MBDG.PDF
Also, the following is a great collector resource:
1) Association of Air Force Missileers Web Site: http://www.afmissileers.org/keeping-informed.html
2) Air Force Missile Patch pdf by Ret. Major Greg Ogletree, USAF. Link has disappeared but I do have the pdf. Please PM me if you want the information, I should be able to email it to you. It has more missile badge information as well as missile patch history.
On the reference "A history of the USAF Missile badge" pdf link http://afmissileers.com/MBDG.PDF Appendix 3, towards the end of the pdf, is where you'll find the collectors info and some missile badge pictures
