CP Company NYC


Recommended Posts

This is a scarce hallmark that is often confused with GP or General Products which covered in another thread. Charles Polk Company used as a hallmark CP Co NYC that is stamped in as well as the sterling mark. The reverse side is displayed below so you can see the markings.

The reverse side of the above parachute badge shows the hallmark on the right side. It is stamped CP Co NYC. The sterling marked is also stamped. These Charles Polk wings have been especially elusive to find. I don't have much information on this company, so perhaps some of the other collectors can add any details they might have. Seeing this example maybe will help some avoid confusion with the intertwined GP hallmark used by General Products.

Here's another variation of the CP Co Hallmark. This from a 1960's era CIB.

 

"CP CO NYC" in an Oval and "1P" stamped under that.

After Charles Polk used the CP Co NYC Hallmark, the single number-letter hallmark used was 1P. In my experience this has been a rather scarce hallmark to come by. Here are two examples of the Polk 1P Hallmark on basic parachutist wings. I have never seen senior or master parachutist wings with either the CP Co NYC or the 1P Hallmarks. They may be out there, so if anyone has more info, let us know.

After I was thinking that NO Master Parachutist Badges were out there with the 1P marking, one suddenly appeared. So I suppose that there just may be some seniors out there as well. I guess I will have to update my want list. Always looking...
