Obverse Design Top has perched eagle, wings spread, head ducked down and facing right. This eagle has the wings swept down below the feet. This eagle is holding a banner in its mouth which goes up on the eagle's left wing (the right of the image), similar to the BG-25 badge type. The banner is blank. The center of the shield has the first seal of the Canal Zone with a Spanish galleon going through a sea level canal. Above the seal is a curving banner which has tails trailing up from either end. The banner has the words "CHIEF ADMEASURER". Below the seal is another banner with tails scrolled up at either end. This banner reads "PANAMA CANAL". Below the shield is a smooth square for the badge number. The example above was never issued a number. The shield overall has a textured background. The shield has a raised ridge as the edge.

The Chief Admeasurer determined the tolls for ships going through the Panama Canal. I would appreciate e-mail from anyone who can add anything to the history of these badges.
