Original Civilian Conservation Corps ( CCC ) Ring
(Authentic Collectible Ring - With Transit & Trees )
Up for auction is a mens CCC ring, that has the emblem of the Civilian Conservation Corps, aka - the "CCC", and sometimes called "Roosevelt's Tree Army".

Has the original finish, and is stamped on the inside "Made in USA". A men's size ring, the inside diameter measures 3/4 inch in diameter. I am unsure of the metal this ring is made of. It is not bent, dented or out of round, the pictures will show you several closeup views of the ring.

The Civilian Conservation Corps was a New Deal agency created by the Roosevelt administration to provide employment for young unmarried men whose families were on relief. The CCC was run primarily by the War Department - and it showed: recruits lived in military-style tents or barracks, wore blue denim uniforms, were roused by early-morning bugle call, lined up for calisthenics and inspection, and followed strict camp rules. They worked a 40-hour week and were paid $30 a month, $25 of which was sent to their families back home. When the program started in 1933, officials predicted that 250,000 "boys" would enroll; by the time it ended in 1942, more than 3,000,000 men has sweated their way through a CCC hitch.
