You are bidding on a RARE, NEVER USED, Navy Rating Badge patch for Gunner's Mate (GM) that was designed for a specific West Coast Program to be worn on Navy coveralls. What makes this a RARE find is that it isn't a typical rating badge - it only signifies the rating specialty the wearer belongs to & not the pay grade. Also, I obtained this patch from the Navy Draftsman who designed it for the Navy. The program for which it was designed no longer exists. The patch measures approximately 4 1/4" wide by 2 3/4" high, and is beautifully colored (see it in the picture below of four different ratings badges).

This auction is for the Gunner's Mate (GM) badge only!!!
