It is truly a masterpiece for collection. In any case, if you are not satisfied with the product. In good condition as on the photos!
Very Interesting little grouping, this grouping was acquired from a fellow collector a few years back. He had acquired directly from the veterans family not long prior but had not been able to source the name or any other material from the estate. He had some information but I can’t seem to find where I saved or recorded it. The only part I remember was that the grouping had belonged to a navy commander who served during WW2 and possibly the Korean War. Past that I can’t recall anything. I think he might have retired as a captain but can’t confirm this! Keep that in mind when considering the price! Please check out my other militaria and collectible offerings!
