Question about Boatswain's mate rank

Is this a WW2 era right arm Boatswain's mate 1st class rank or something earlier?  There seems to be too much space between the bottom of the anchors and the start of the chevrons.

It doesn’t seem to match the normal US made patterns, so I would guess foreign made. That being said, I think it would be a challenge to date beyond pre-1948.

Agree totally not the norm, but embroidery looks US to me.  And if you ignore the abnormally large  gap between chevrons and anchor, it looks even more US made.

I think it’s a manufacturing “error” -       US-made.

Was this sewn on a jumper at one time, seeing White sewing threads?

I believe it's wartime U.S. made.
