CAN YOU I.D. THIS RATING BADGE,NOT NAVY

Recommended Posts

Snag this off ebay this past weekend. I admit i had to look this one up but do know the i.d.. Thought i would see if others could i.d. it first. At first glance it looks like a old 1st class signalman, but take a closer look to insignia, you see this has staff points on the flag posts. The time frame is 1915-1920

Yes Justin you got it. In 1921 the Signalman rating badge came out and i am guessing the coast coast guard would of use that insignia in 1921 also. Prior to 1921 there was a distinguishing mark only in use for the navy for Quartermasters qualified as Signalmen.
