The rank of Chief Petty Officer was created in 1897 and the enlisted rank insignia (rates) changed and the design of the new rates now look much like they do today. The later regulations of 1905 slightly differed in minor detail of how the eagle was perched on a branch, this was also the last time colour plates appeared until 1941 for the last time,

Slip-on ranks slide into the epaulet when unbuttoned and then is buttoned to hold the rank insignia place. Pinning on metal rank badges damages their uniform collars, epaulettes and lapels. Most air forces, armies and Navies worldwide employ slip-on ranks worn by other ranks and officers alike. These shown here are worn in Islamic nations.
