This Civil Defense Region 10 Coordinator’s badge is named to Ben Kozo. This badge is gold plated with a multi-color enamel center and blue enamel lettering. Size 54mm tall by 44mm wide. This obsolete badge dates from the old “duck and cover” Cold War days of the late 1940’s through the 1950’s. Region 10 included the North Western States of Alaska, Idaho, Oregon and Washington. The reverse has a hinged pin with rotating catch and is marked “HI-GLO” which indicates that this badge is a product of the Blackinton Company which has made some of the highest quality badges for over 150 years. This badge is in near mint condition with only one small shallow surface chip to the enamel at 7 o’clock. Since it is so shiny and reflective the scan looks much darker than the actual badge.
