A rare, WWII era merchant marines pin made of sterling silver. Several versions of this pin were made, most of them with enamel inlay that tended to wear off. This version was produced without any enamel. It is in excellent condition with a lovely natural patina. The pin is a little loose, but when attached to fabric, will hold securely. A rare find for the merchant marine collector.
We have left the patina intact, but are happy to polish this before shipping, if desired. Just let us know during checkout.
The back reads, "STERLING, DES PAT 131446" and "ICBWU, A.E. CO, UTICA, NY"
Measures 31 x 23 x 7 mm
