    Thanks guys glad you guys like the badge. Steve when I bought it all I saw was the sterling mark . It wasn't until I walked out side into the light of day that I saw the GEMSCO mark . Chris this is the first sub badge I have seen in years. I think they are harder to find then German sub badges. jay this is the first WWII item I've picked up in a long time. but if your ever up this way we will do some picking. Gary
