Hey Dan. Good to see you on here again.


Always looking for USN WW2 era Bullion Chief Petty Officer Rates, any Chief Petty Officer Airship Rigger Rates, Liberty Cuffs, WW2 USMC Insignia and Distinguishing Marks, and WW2 Civil Defense and Civil Air Patrol Insignia

yes, took a break and sold off most of my uniform collection. Have the insignia collection yet and actually bought a rate the other week. So I guess I am back buying rating badges that I need.

Oh no, more competition ;-)

 

Welcome back.

Hmm, someone mess up a USCG Port Security badge? Otherwise, unauthorized Shore Patrol? This is a new one for me.

Yeah, guessing this one falls into  the rates that were made before they were authorized by regs. Working on a riker mount with such rates and strikers.  He had this listed as a "US Navy 1st Class Petty Steam Propulsionman Rate, WWII, World War II, WW2". Not sure were he got that info at.

That's a lot of right shoulder aviation rates navyman. As a rate collector, you've got to love those. The aviation quartermaster and rigger rates are just amazing and not that easy to find. Thanks for sharing.

Thanks, it seem like there easier found on white. I personally found that the aviation rigger rates are far more rarer then the aviation quartermaster rates even though they were shorter lived.

I think there were only 3 aviation rates during ww1. You had aviation Carpenter's mate,  aviation Machinist's mate, and Aviation Quartermaster.

Never seen this one before. 1416224016_20200515_205712_resize_14(1).jpg.501fa1f851667594eb9c4a56b7f6bc62.jpg

 

I have been on here sporadically and didn't see that you returned, Jason! You can't make a clean break, can you?

I have one or two of these. I got them from a long-time navy rate collector who was a retired CPO (he retired in the 1970s). Mine is/are on the lightweight cotton.

 


I do not profess to be a militaria expert, but I conduct as much research as I am capable of and then write about my findings.

Did he mention what they were for by chance?  Yeah, i have buying a few rates lately.  I have my insignia collection yet and some uniforms and helmets and other navy things. Just down size a lot.

No. He couldn't. He passed away a few years before I inherited the collection. I went to high school with his daughter and she saw my collection at a public display and contacted me to ask me if I would be interested in looking at her father's collection of hundreds of rating badges ranging from the 30s-60s. Of course, I took them.

 Also, I landed a navy group that should arrive in tomorrow's mail that has me on edge. It took over a month to nail down and it finally was sent this week. I can't rest until it lands. 

Congrats on your return. Are you changing your focus at all?

Thanks,

                  Just probably going to buy sea service's insignia, but i do collect ww2 German but mostly edge weapons. Also buy some graded  comics a few times a year, marvel key issue's. Usually buy a few items of each a year.   Curious to what you have coming.

Sounds good for you re-entering the insignia game. I have some TR edged weapons but that really isn't my thing. The items are my uncle's bringbacks.

 

I will share the new items after I get them photographed (provided they arrive safely).
