CPO Challenge Coins

A subculture beneath US Navy Challenge coins is the whole world of the Chief Petty Officer Challenge Coin. Each unit and every command in the Navy has a Chiefs Mess and that Chief’s mess has a Coin. These coins are the pinnacle of the Challenge Coin collectors collection from the Us Navy. Each type of CPO coin which has already been talked about includes a Mess that is unique to the Chiefs, the difference is that the Chiefs Coin has more detail. It holds more value than a normal command challenge coin since it was presented for a particular job that is great by her or his Chief to that Sailor. It has to have a FOULED anchor with the Silver USN. You can find a mixture of five Standard Anchors on today’s Chief challenge Coins. The Standard CPO anchor, the Senior Chief Anchor, and the Master Chiefs Anchor. Then is a Heritage Anchor, it is called by the Falling N some and with 3 stars you will find the rare MCPON anchor on some Challenge coins.
