    Well SC might be South Carolina and it looks suspiciously like the the baseball logo of that state. Might be a clue? Could it be from a National Guard outfit or one of the military schools South Carolina is famous for?

    Hi Nick, it is Officer Candidate School. See how it looks like "OCS"?

    Cheers, Ade.

    I see Stroh's Beer written on the pot. I had that beer when I was stationed in North Caroina, so it is probably from South Carolina. As Noel said, it might be from a National Guard outfit, but it is probably a personal add-on. I can't make out the other writing. The SC definitely looks like a sports or college decal.

    I stand corrected by Ade. I just looked and found the same logo for many National Guard Officer Candidate Schools in different color variations depending on the state. Sharp fellow, this Ade. We need to make sure the KGB doesn't kidnap him.

    This design of insignia was first used in 1941.
