Vintage Naval Academy Uniform Pin. This is a heavy large detailed pin. It measures 2 1/4" H X 1 3/4" W. As you can see by the pictures the words U.S., Navel, Academy, Ex, Scientia, Tridens is written on it. The pin is detailed with a hand holding a trident, laurel leaves and what appears to be an open book beneath a sailing vessel riding the waves. If you notice on my pictures there are 2 pins with studs on the back. These are to hold the pin firmly. I believe because of the size and weight, this pin would have been worn on a uniform or breast pocket. The patina that has built up on this pin just adds to the pieces appeal. What a great gift for the military person, sailing enthusiast or just a unique piece to own.
