I didn't see this one posted a Grey RMC nice shiny bullion never used

 

 

Very nice Radioman. I love the grey rates and they are not easy to find in bullion.

"nice pair" words that should never be spoken between two squids...

Hello dskjl,  Do you still have the Master Chief Gunner's Mate?  If so, are you interested in a trade or sale?  It would make a nice mate to my Senior Chief.  Just asking since you mentioned you were selling off your collection.  Thanks,

Hello Everyone,  Does anyone know the story behind why this badge CPO Turret Captain in green would exist?  I can't come up with a scenario where this rating badge would be worn?  The green material is the old USMC felt-like cloth, not gabardine, serge, or other dress uniform material.  I apologize if this has been covered before somewhere on the forum.  Thanks,  Dennie

Haven't been on the forum for awhile, I've been spending much time with my other hobbies. I keep my USN rating badges and specialty marks in plastic sleeves in large notebooks. I thought I'd put up a rotating display in my study. Here's the first display.

Very nice!  I didn’t know Yeoman and Machinist Mates were right arm rates. Interesting.

They weren’t. Prior to 1940, the eagle looked left on all rates. Those on the left sleeve had the eagle looking to the rear.

Ok. That’s makes sense. Never knew that. Thanks!

Well you never see that rate for trade or for sale, ever. WOW. I have one like that. What I need is your green one, lol. That is the only green AR rate I have ever seen. It is a beauty.

Great, thanks.   Here's two other qualification badges I dug out of my collection.
