Navy Hat Badges


Recommended Posts

I came across two navy hat badges the price seemed right. I was in a hurry and didn't have time to ask you fellow members. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

The first one is a smaller sized vanguard 10-20 gf and sterling.

The second one is of larger size and is amcraft v20k marked. The top pin is broke off.

Both are WW2 era. Could be a bit more recent, but tough to date these. Small one for overseas cap. Large one for the visor cap. The top pin on the large one is no big deal - it's just a short pin to stabilize the badge (so it doesn't rotate).

Thank You for your information. Do you have any kind of a price range on these so I know if I over paid? I know I am not in the right section for values. Just, wanted to post in the section that would get more attention from people that specialize in these sort of things.

I collect these also! They are both made by two of the more common WW2 makers (Gemsco) and (Vanguard)! As kurt said they could be a little bit after but more likely WW2 era. I started collecting them a few years back and the market was rather strong! Lately these more common example have been bring fairly small sums! The Vanguard Overseas Cap example sells $6-$12 generally (lately on the lower end). The Larger Gemsco Officer Cap Example is also very common Prices Range $10-$20 usually this one has a few issues, the one broken piece and then lots of verdigris, i am going to say value some where around $12! Hope this helps!
