This pin is so cool.. It's about 2.5 inches across and it's marked 925. I am assuming this is somehow military related as I got it with the rest of my military box of stuff.
Your thoughts?

    That's a US Navy Surface Warfare Qualification Badge. Here's a little background via Wikipedia:

    Sterling silver is 92.5% silver or simply 925

    Chrisnp knows his stuff. He saved me a lot of web surfing frustration.

    Agreed... I had been looking around to find out more about my military things and gave up. So this is amazing.

    Thanks for the kind words Valentino97. I've been collecting militaria for over 40 years now (Gawd, I'm that old????) and I'm still learning things. Mostly I can help because I remember only enough to know where to look for the rest.

    Hello there Dr Fluffy. You have very nice pieces. This is an Enlisted Surface Warfare Specialist pin (as you know). I earned one during time in the US Navy. You have a good eye.

    Wow... Mr. EggSalad, didn't even know you were in the US Navy... Welcome to CW...
