    Yes this is a earlier version of the carpenter's mate, but there were other job titles listed under this mark such as painter ect... This rating goes back to the 1880's

    The two carpenters striker are for seaman(non petty officer) Po3 is a capenter rate,looks ww2 but could be post war. I think this rate was discontinue in 1948.

    The MO Machinist's cpo looks ww2 but was worn until 1948. The two Pharmacist's rate uniforms look ww2 also and were worn until 1948. In 1948 the pharmacist mark was changed. In 1948 all rating badges were worn on the left sleeve and the eagle faces to the wearer front. Pre ww2 all the eagles heads face to our right, there left. In ww2 there were a few rating badges that were worn on the right sleeve like they were prior. Those eagle still face to the wearer left of our right and the left arm rates now face the oppisite direction so they face to the wearer front. I think I mention the rating badges that were worn on the right sleeve earlier in this thread. Then like I mention above in 1948 all rates were worn on the left arm and all face the same direction, which would be to the wearer front.
    I hope I am not confusing you more.

    Hey Jason
    Thinking back to my Boot Camp days
    Was wondering if you have any Bootcamp crows.
    While they didn't have a rate insignia I remember them to be much smaller than normal badges

    Here is a display I did. The S with knot is SAMPSON NAVAL TRAINING CENTER INSIGNIA
    (IT IS BELIEVE THIS INSIGNIA WAS USED TO DESIGNATE CLASS LEADERS AT SAMPSON NAVAL TRAINING CENTER DURING 1944-1945)
    There are boot camp rates from ww1-1960's. I post most of them on Page 3, post #29 of this thread

    I think they worn them into the 70's. These were for petty officers.

    I stand corrected, I went and looked at some pictures and our boot camp crows had the square knot rating insignia on them
