US Navy Shellback Neptune Rex 3 Inch Magnum Coin
Did someone say Mermaid?
Shellbacks: A Most Honorable and Noble Tradition. For as long as Sailors have gone to sea there have been traditions, ceremonies spanning the decks of the wooden ships and the iron men that sail them to the keel hauling, kissing the gunner’s daughter, being dragged across the equator with a rope and a prayer and tossed from wave to wave or maybe it was the traditions that seldom have experienced and even fewer ever talk about, The Shellback Ceremony.
This US Navy Shellback Neptune Rex Coin was created for the Sailors that have undergone the transformation from Pollywog to Shellback and have survived the Court Of Neptune Rex! King Neptune, his Mermaid, the Pollywog, sharks, manta rays, sea turtles, starfish, crabs and so much more are arrayed in fine Shellback tradition. This may be one of the most colorful and details United States Navy coins in the arsenal and something to be cherished in your military coin collection or given as a gift to a friend or family member.
