Here is a very nice and scarce WWII US Naval Construction Battalion, "Construmius Batuimus U.S.N." Seabees CB's distinguished insignia badge to add to your collection. This insignia was recently acquired from a collection of US Naval ( CB's) Seabees items. From what I have seen over the years of dealing in military related items, they for some reason didn't put out very much for the Seabees. This is one of a few items, that I will be putting up for sale from this collection. This insignia is maker marked on the back in raised letters: METAL ARTS CO. ROCH N.Y. It is in excellent condition without any problems to the enamelling. It does have some surface loss to its original lacquer surface coating, but other than that no problem. No chips, cracks, or loss. If you are familiar with this piece, you will know that the two areas on either side of the CB figures legs: (left) crossed leaves, and on the (right) anchor. From a distance, it appears that this is enamel damage, but it is not the case. You will be able to see this up close in our other USN CB's distinctive insignia that we also have up for sale. But that one doesn't have any enamelling like this one. Also for complete item description, the center CB figure on this piece pictured, is a separately applied piece, and not a part of this stamped insignia. This insignia measures just over 1-1/4" in height at its center point, by just about 15/16" across. Don't miss out on adding this piece of WWII history to your collection. Our photos should tell you just about all of the rest. Please email us with any questions or concerns that you may have. You will be answered in a timely manner. If asking on or near the weekend, give us a little more time to respond, as we may be away on business.
