Up for auction is this U.S. Navy World War II sterling silver mermaid pin honoring the “Silent Service” of submariners. It would have been given to a sweetheart back home. The pin depicts a mermaid sitting in kelp or seaweed. The seaweed is in the shape of a V, signifying VICTORY.  The pin is 1 3/8 inches tall and 1 inch wide. The back is stamped STERLING and contains the hallmark for the UNCAS Company. (Uncas began production in 1911 and began using this hallmark in the mid 1920s. They were best known for their production of finger rings.) The pin is in very good condition. It has a C clasp that has no rotating part. I do not know if it originally had one or not (see pic #4). It still holds the stem very tightly and works just as well as is. 

This pin is showcased in David A. Jones book, U.S. Silent Service: Dolphins & Combat Insignia 1924-1945.

I am beginning this auction at a low price and will let the bidders decide its value! If you are the lucky winner of this insignia, please contact me within 3 days and make payment within one week. PLEASE DO NOT BID if you do not live in the USA or Canada. I am only shipping to these two countries at the present time. Items selling for $50.00 or more will ship with insurance (USA only), and items selling for less than $50.00 will ship with delivery confirmation (USA only) only. If more than one purchase is made from me at the same time, each item after the first one has a shipping charge of $.50.

Thanks for considering this purchase and GOOD LUCK!
