What is this board?

Recommended Posts

What service insignia is on the button ?? With a gold button possibly an older version from a mess dress uniform either Army or Air Corps / Force.

It has a Navy button but this isn’t Navy.

 

Air Force I think but what’s the gold stripe mean?

Went through USN uniform regs up to 1969 and cannot find anything USN of that pattern..

Looks AF, minus the gold stripes. Like MasterMate suggested, could be an early prototype from the 50s. As far as the Navy button, could be just something someone put on.

By some chance could it be from a place like a maritime academy

Another tack might be one of the private 'prep' schools geared towards the land services vs naval orientation..

Greetings,

 

The insignia on the board is an odd shape; more like the design you see on a Navy Medical Officer board as opposed to a rank (oak leaf).

 

Best,

 

Peter
