    The trick is not skimming past it. The angle is different but the wrap-around relief is a dead giveaway.





    Someone tell me what this uniform is? I'm thinking variations of WWII, US Merchant Navy, Petty officer or officer steward, but the question is really out of my league.

    You have a keen eye. I was going to search for it focusing on the pedestal/equestrian combo. That's why I asked what it was called. Good job. Using Wikipedia was smart too.
