    One of these is pictured in the book "US Silent Service. Dolphins & Combat Insignia 1924 - 1945" by David M. Jones, where it is identified as "a non-regulation Navy pin awarded after completion of torpedo school."

    Thank you for sharing your knowldege and identifying this for me! Do you happen to have any idea as to the value of this badge? I think it is very cool and intend to keep it, but I am curious. Thank you again! -Eric

    Sorry; but I'am afraid I really can't help you in terms of the badge's rarity or value. It's not in my field of collecting interests.

    Thanks, I will take a look at that book. Value is not a huge concern since I intend to keep it.
