Mystery Pin

A lady donated an RCCS lapel pin to our
CAVUNP Chapter in Niagara.

Nobody in the Chapter recognizes this
origin of this sterling silver pin.

The donor's father was a WWII member of
the RCCS - Nicolas W. Gramyk.

Can you or anyone in the Club membership
identify the year the pin was made
