WWII Battleship “Launching” Souvenir 20 Pinbacks – NY Shipbuilding – Camden, Nj. 20 PIECE LOT of WWII BATTLESHIP “LAUNCHING” SOUVENIR PINBACKS – NEW YORK SHIPBUILDING CORP. Driven by a sense of patriotic zeal as well as steady salaries, tens of thousands of Camden County residents toiled round-the-clock in the yard constructing those craft. The work was performed by a tight-knit community that kept its eyes and ears ever cocked to events around the world; that kept a constant watch for which vessels had been sunk or crippled, what battles had been won or lost, and which relatives or friends had died or been wounded on distant battlefields that week. This collection of souvenir badges show the commitment of one local citizen, acquired from a local estate in Camden, NJ. This expansive collection is a testament to the dedication and’can-do ethic’ that helped enable the United States to win WWII. Each Pinback pin Features the Text: NEW YORK SHIPBUILDING CORP. XXXXXXXXX List of Ships included in lot: U. MONTPELIER Each has a sturdy locking pin back for secure wear. The buttons show very minimal wearing of the fronts a bit of plate wear on the back. These small flaws do not compromise the beauty or integrity of the pieces of American History. Please see our original photographs and use them as an extension of our written description.
