The picture shows a front and back view of this Old United States Navy Electric Boat Submarine Metal Jewelry Pin. The pin is not dated but it is believed to be from the 1940s during World War II. The pin is made of an unknown metal. It is simply marked ''EB'' (for Electric Boat) on the conning tower. The pin measures 2-3/4'' long. It appears to be in excellent to near mint condition as pictured. Below here, for reference, is some additional information about the Electric Boat Company:

General Dynamics Electric Boat (GDEB) is a division of General Dynamics Corporation. It has been the primary builder of submarines for the United States Navy for over 100 years. The company's main facilities are a shipyard in Groton, Connecticut, a hull fabrication and outfitting facility in Quonset Point, Rhode Island, and a design and engineering facility in New London, Connecticut.

History
The company was founded in 1899 by Isaac Rice as the Electric Boat Company to build John Philip Holland's submersible designs, which were developed at Lewis Nixon's Crescent Shipyard in Elizabeth, New Jersey. The first submarine this shipyard built was Holland VI, which was later renamed U.S.S.Holland(SS-1). On 11 April 1900 it became the first modern submarine to be purchased and commissioned into the United States Navy. The success of Holland VI ushered in the demand for follow up models (A class or Plunger class) that began with the prototype submersible Fulton built at the same shipyard as Holland. Some overseas navies were interested in John Holland's latest submarine designs, and so purchased the rights to build them under licensing contracts through the Electric Boat Company; and these included Great Britain's Royal Navy, Japan's Imperial Japanese Navy, Russia's Imperial Russian Navy, and the Netherlands' Royal Netherlands Navy.

During the World War I era, the company and its subsidiaries (notably Elco) built 85 submarines (via subcontractors) and 722 submarine chasers for the United States Navy, and 580 - 80 foot motor launches for the British Royal Navy. After the war, the U.S. Navy did not order another submarine from the company until Cuttlefish in 1931. During World War II, the company built 74 submarines, while Elco built nearly 400 PT boats. Electric Boat ranked 77th among United States corporations in the value of World War II military production contracts.

In 1952, Electric Boat was reorganized as General Dynamics Corporation under John Jay Hopkins. When General Dynamics acquired Convair the following year, the holding company assumed the ''General Dynamics'' name, with the submarine building operation reverting to the ''Electric Boat'' name. Electric Boat built the first nuclear submarine, the U.S.S. Nautilus, which was launched in January 1954, and the first ballistic missile submarine, the U.S.S.George Washington, in 1959. Submarines of the Ohio, Los Angeles, Seawolf, and Virginia classes were also constructed by Electric Boat.

In 2002, Electric Boat conducted preservation work on the Nautilus, preparing her for her berth at the U.S. Navy Submarine Force Library and Museum in Groton, Connecticut, where she now resides as a museum. Electric Boat's first submarine, Holland was scrapped in 1913.


Electric Boat overhauls and undertakes repair work on fast attack class boats. Electric Boat built the Ohio class ballistic missile submarines and Seawolf class submarines as well as others. However, most of the work done in the shipyard today is focused on construction of the Virginia class, notably the new Block III evolution.
