|Original Price:|| |
|This is a Vintage Cast Mamber Badge from the earliest days of Disneyland. My understanding is that it was worn by Cast Members in the early days of the Submarine Voyage ride at Disneyland. This ride was in place from 1959 until 1998.|
The badge is gold plated. It has both a straight back pin and a post (this may have been added later). The bottom of the pin depicts two sea monsters / whales on each side of a submarine. The badge is known in US Navy lingo as a set of "Dolphins" depicting the fish, (not the mammal) on either side of a submarine's bow wave. The badge itself, minus the Disney logo, is the same design as the US Navy qualification badge.
The top of the badge has the original Disneyland logo that was used in the early days of the park. The round logo is identical to the ones on Pins 25777 and 31593.
