I recently purchased a lot of Navy rating patches. Does anyone recommend a reference to be able to figure out what the rate is? Three are so many I have never seen before. Thanks for any help.

You can buy John Stacey’s book on US Navy Ratings and Marks from ASMIC. It includes images of all the specialty marks (the name of the symbol in the rating badge).

If you post photos I’ll be happy to ID them for you.

ETA: Let’s be polite folks. Not everything is easy to find, and not every reference is necessarily correct. Why knock a collector for asking what is a good reference source?
