Note the dates May 1903 to May 1907 which was the typical 4 year naval enlistement.

The top two show the 1894 Eagle clutching the fouled anchor with the initials USN engraved on the rear.However, through old photographs obtained by The Pirate's Lair of sailors eating on their respective mess decks, wardrooms and galleys it appears that the white to off-white tin covered enamelware metal plates, bowls and cups incorporating "USN" or "US Navy" were pretty much standard from post Civil War up until the early 1900's.Though this enamelware used as standard Navy dinnerware and Navy tableware was sturdy and utilitarian to hold up to salty seas and repetitive heavy industrial cleanings, it certainly was not made for elegant fine dining.We have been fortunate enough to collect quite a number of these plates, bowls and cups.As can be seen the plate has USN in light blue lettering along it's flat rim with the rim edge being highlighted in a dark blue.
