    USS Saratoga (CVA-60) master-at-arms badge.
    Die-cut, sunburst-topped shield with pin and small Burgess clasp. 2.90"x2", no hallmark. Likely struck in the Mid-1950s to mid-1960s. The Saratoga was reclassified (CV-60) in June of 1972.

    I'm currently collecting and researching U.S. Navy usage of law enforcement style badges, for another USN memorabilia book I'm writing.

    Help needed:
    I'd like to correspond with a police badge collector who is well versed in identifying materials used in vintage badge production. I also have a rare jeweler made USN MAA badge, possibly late-1930s or 1940s produced, that has an obscure stamp on the reverse. I've researched, but can't identify this stamped mark. See unidentified mark in second photo. I also have another USN MAA badge that is stamped "Silver y.t.k." I've been unable to decipher, the "y.t.k." stamp. (photo 3).

      Never found the meaning of the stamps on reverse of badge. I've posted a few dozen rare U.S. Navy law enforcement-style badges here: http://navycollector.com/Navy-MAA-Police%20Badges.htm
