The picture shows a larger view of all (8) Old Gold Filled United States Naval Academy Midshipman Navy Anchor Insignia Pins in this lot. The pins are not dated but they are old. All but two have a ship anchor with rope. The other two just have the anchor. The left and center ones have a pin with a clasp on the back. The other larger one and all of the smaller ones have one or two tie tack type pins on the back. All off them have their pin back sections included. The backs have some different markings. The left large one reads ''1/20 10K GF KREW''. The center large one reads ''10K G.F. JMS - G - I''. The right large one is marked ''H - 24 - N''. Three of the smaller ones are marked ''1/20 10K GF''. One of the smaller ones reads ''H - 24 - N'' and the last smaller one is not marked. To judge the sizes the largest pin measures 1-3/16'' x 1-7/8''. These appear to range from excellent to mint condition as pictured.

Thankfully, Ray Trygstad, LCDR USN (Retired), a former Navy ROTC Assistant Professor and former Midshipman at the U.S. Naval Academy has identified all of these pins for us. He wrote:

The "(8) Old Gold Filled Navy Anchor Pins" on your page are the following:

Bottom center: U.S. Navy Midshipman cap insignia worn by Naval Academy and Reserve Office Training Corps Midshipmen and by Navy Officer Candidates.

Bottom left and right: U.S. Navy Midshipman left side coat insignia for wear on Service Dress Blue/Full Dress Blue coats. (Both are left-side insignia)

Top row: U.S. Navy Midshipman collar insignia for Third-Class (Sophomore) and Second-Class (Junior) Midshipmen for wear on khaki or blue working uniforms. 2/C wear both anchors with the ends of the ropes pointed out. 3/C wear one anchor on the right collar with the end of the rope pointed out. So you have two pairs of MIDN 2/C anchors and one MIDN 3/C anchor.
