Finely made gold bullion cap and uniform insignia.
The Public Health Service insignia in this lot, and particularly the cap band and embroidered eagle are pre- WWII and wartime used. The eagle on Naval and PHS insignia looked to the left until we entered the war, and the eagle looked right (that is to say the direction not the attitude).
Included in the lot are the cap band and eagle, uniform embroidered cuff insignia, and three rank insignia; on Lt. Comdr’s oakleaf that is 1/20 10K plate, and 2 Commander rank pins made by Hillborn & Hamburger “STERLING” marked. All are clutch back and worn on shirt collars.
Overall condition is fine.
