Did GEMSCO Purchase AMICO?

Recommended Posts

Does anyone have any knowledge or reference regarding whether or not the General Merchandising Company(gemsco) purchased the American Insignia Company(amico)? I seem to recall seeing a mention of this taking place right after WW2 ended, but am unable to find any sort of support or verification.

Thank you for any info.

 


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

GEMSCO was also known as the General Embroidery and Military Supply Company at one time.
