Sterling Silver USM ID Bracelet
During World War II, service members donned identification bracelets featuring engraved details like name, rank, and serial number as a backup to their standard issued dog tags. Post-war, many kept wearing them as a symbol of their service, extending their popularity deep into the 1940s. These bracelets became a part of American culture over the years, and in the 1970s, non-military Americans wore similar bracelets to honor soldiers missing in action. This WW2-era USN bracelet features an additional plaque with the signature fouled anchor symbol.
