ARTIFACT: 1930's - WWII Oakland, California Moore Dry Dock Company Worker Badge by Patrick and Co., San Francisco. During WWII, Moore Dry Dock was among the top 100 valued companies for their efforts supporting the war building over 100 ships for the United States Navy. Moore Dry Dock employed thousands of skilled and unskilled African-Americans despite challenges faced during a time of rampant discrimination. To honor their wartime contributions, an inscription at the WWII Homefront National Historical Park reads: "Moore Dry Dock handled the difficult jobs of production, repair and conversion that slowed overall output in other yards." The round worker badge reads: "CAR 2726" in the center and is surrounded by the words: "MOORE DRY DOCK COMPANY".

VINTAGE: Circa 1930's - WWII.

SIZE: Approximately 1-1/2" in diameter.

MATERIALS / CONSTRUCTION: Nickel plated nickel with painted lettering.

ATTACHMENT: Horizontal safety style pin.

MARKINGS: "PATRICK & CO. S.F."

ITEM NOTES: This is from a Homefront, war workers collection which we will be listing more of over the next few months. VBEX15 LHEX5/15 SHEX10/17/21

CONDITION: 8- (Very Fine—Excellent): The badge shows moderate wear, nearly all the paint and plated details remain intact.

GUARANTEE: As with all my artifacts, this piece is guaranteed to be original, as described.
