Nice WWII United States Coast Guard Officer Overseas Hat Badge. Scarce in this small size made from 1/20 10K gold fill and sterling by H & H. The badge shows an eagle perched atop a horizontal anchor, the breast of the eagle displays a stars and bars shield and its wings are spread wide while his gaze is to the viewers left. The reverse shows a nice makers mark and riveted construction.
Approximately 1 3/8" x 1 3/16"
MATERIALS / CONSTRUCTION:
1/20 10K gold fill, sterling, two-piece riveted construction.
Horizontal pin with drop in swivel locking catch.
"H & H" makers mark; "1/20 10K + STER"
This is from a USCG collection which we will be listing more of over the next few months. VAJX13 LFJX6/15 SEJX9/15
8- (Very Fine - Excellent): The pin shows moderate to heavy wear/oxidation mostly on reverse, much of the gold fill remains, overall handsome patina.
GUARANTEE: As with all my artifacts, this piece is guaranteed to be original, as described.
