The enlisted grades of E-8 Senior Chief Petty Officer and and E-9 Master Chief Petty Officer were established by Congressional legislation in 1958. To be promoted to the E-8 grade, Chief Petty Officers must have spent at least four years at E-7 and have accumulated at least ten total years of service. On 1 November 1958 promotions were announced with an effective date of 16 November 1958.

Senior Chief Petty Officers (SCPO) are, by definition, a rare breed in the Coast Guard: just 2.5 percent of the service’s enlisted personnel are allowed to serve in this grade at any given time. Display your pride of service with this pair of tastefully appointed cuff links featuring the SCOP insignia of Coast Guard shield, fouled anchor, and single star.

Cuff links are worn with the Formal Dress Blue, Dinner Dress Blue Jacket, and Dinner Dress White Jacket uniforms.
