Here's a nice "salty" one I picked up not too long ago... a subdued SEAL Trident, made by Vanguard. You can just barely see the marking on the back V-21-N. I'll post a close up of it.

 

Does anyone know what time period these metal subdued insignia were used? I don't think they are currently in use and have been replaced with the sewn SEAL Trident name tapes. Thanks!

Hello all,

 

I recently picked up this UDT insignia. I don't know much about these and it isn't something I collect, but I thought the hallmark was kind of interesting. I was curious what you all thought of it? Real/fake? Any idea as to value? Thanks!

Last of the photos. It measures about 2 inches and the clutches are marked "Ballou"? I think.

It looks right to me as Ive seen that small stamped N on the flintlock handle on other period UDT badges. However this is an unusual piece as what are the odds of another Vanguard piece surfacing where Antaya has placed their hallmark over their competitors hallmark similarity to the above pictured Trident.
