US NAVY Metal Badge Pin: SSBN Submarine Deterrent Patrol, Regulation Size in Silver Oxidized Finish.
The SSBN insignia features a Lafayette-class submarine with superimposed Polaris missile and electron rings, which signify the armament & nuclear powered characteristics of the FBM Deterrent Force. A scroll beneath the submarine holds up to six service stars, with one gold star authorized for each successful patrol (after the first, the pin being number one) or a silver star for five successful patrols. At twenty (20) successful patrols, the SSBN pin is upgraded to a gold design.
