WW1 Medals & Groupings
A rare find in a employee badge for the "Lake Torpedo Boat Company" of Bridgeport, Ct. This company completed 26 submarines for the Navy, many of which served in WW1. The company was founded in 1901 and closed its doors in 1924, when it could not keep up with demands from the Navy for greater production. The badge is silver in color, but looks gold because of my lighting, when I took the photo's. The badge is 1 3/8 " in diameter.
