uss denebola af-56 badge / Vintage Navy Military pin / nautical gift / sailor / pin veteran gift


The ship named Denebola AF-56 ( by the Navy ) ,  was launched 10 June 1944 as Hibbing Victory by Oregon Shipbuilding Co., Portland, Oregon; sponsored by Miss J. A. Bush; transferred to the Navy 1 May 1952; converted at New York Naval Shipyard; and commissioned 20 January 1954, Commander S. E. Ramey in command. An interesting piece of information about this ship was that she served as plane guard for President Dwight D. Eisenhower's plane and on his return from the NATO conference at Paris, in 1957, and during her 1958 Mediterranean tour she replenished ships patrolling off Beirut in the aftermath of the Lebanon crisis. She was among the ships deployed during the Cuban Missile Crises. She was also in the Mediterranean during the June,1967 Arab-Israeli "Six-Day War," and replenished U.S. Navy ships on standby alert during that conflict.

PRODUCT DETAILS………………………………….


+ Maker:

+ Material:

+ Size: see photo

+ Weight: ( based on other cufflinks in comparison)

+ Condition: >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

Because these are vintage estate pieces and are vintage and possibly pre-worn so they are not considered new from the factory…..  Please see photos for any wear or light surface scratches that come with age.☺………………. Sold as is and priced accordingly..  All cufflinks ( unless otherwise specified)  are considered costume jewelry. We don’t polish these previously owned well loved pieces so we can keep the original patina. We try and photograph all of the pieces next to a ruler so you can see the actual size. All jewelry sold as found.


We use the descriptions of any stones from the manufacturers titles when they were first produced. When we refer to the stones as moonstone or jade or garnet, for example, we are using how the original manufacturer of the pieces used them. We cannot guarantee the authenticity of a stone in a costume piece of jewelry. All pieces have been worn at least one time unless otherwise specified.  Although the pieces we carry are unique and interesting they may have a little wear ( if any) but they sure have a lot of love that came with them when they were first purchased way back when.


Just click on our photos for more close ups to help you see all the cool detail on each piece.


I will be happy to combine shipping if you purchase from both.

DO WE ENGRAVE?: We Do not offer engraving services of any sorts as we are not equipped to do so I’m sure your local jeweler would be happy to do so,  sorry for any inconvenience thank you. 




Do you need to convert our US ring sizes to your country>?

This page will be a big help.
