Seller: cmh-lbh-cmh (1,819) 100%, Location: Millersburg, Pennsylvania, Ships to: US, Item: 173599530559 Extremely rare cap badge from the United States lines USS-SS Leviathan. This type was only used for a short time as far as i know. Former hapag liner Vaterland of Ballins trio.(Imperator & Bismark) WW1 aquisition to replace our lost tonnage. Overhauled by Gibbs and Cox at a cost of $8,000,000. The Levi ran for approx 10 years with USL and was beloved by Americans but apparently never made a profit! Thats one expensive loss. I have had this badge for over 30 years in my USL collections but i do not know how old it is exactly. I believe it would have been from the mid 20's. I have never found any evidence that it was worn when used as a troop ship. It is the only one i've ever seen except for a complete cap and some fuzzy early pictures of Captain Hartley on the Leviathan. It's a beautiful insignia thats very similar to what was used on the china pieces. The complete captains cap i have has always been one of the highlights of my USL collection and i'll probably never let that one go. The photos are for reference only. Auction is for the badge only. Thanks for looking.On Oct-21-18 at 19:54:36 PDT, seller added the following information: PLEASE NOTE: The shipping cost listed incorrectly and it will not let me edit it at this time.

Thank you for your understanding. Condition: Used
