ARTIFACT: This is an extremely rare circa World War II jacket patch for the United States Navy VC-7. The design of this patch, which is a fantastic skull spitting forth a ship and a pair of dice, was approved in January 1945. Initially an Escort Carrier Scouting Squadron established in February 1943, VC-7 was first known as VGS-31. One month later it was redesignated as VC-31 (Composite Squadron 31), and then as VC-7 in September of the same year. The squadron was disestablished in October of 1945. This patch has been removed from a jacket.

VINTAGE: Circa World War II.

SIZE: Approximately 7-1/4" in diameter.

MATERIALS / CONSTRUCTION: Hand-painted canvas.

ATTACHMENT: None.

MARKINGS: None.

ITEM NOTES: This is from a United States Navy collection which we will be listing more of over the next few months. VCEJX13 LHIEX3/13 SHHJX8/18 TRVHGEX9/18 TRAIEX18 LHIEX12/18 SHJJX07/19

CONDITION: 7+ (Very Fine+): The patch has been removed from a jacket and shows some wear along its edge.

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