  1. Scott, I have not. This configuration is suspect. -dan
  2. Possibly prior service in other branches?
  3. Scott, Have not seen this before. The collectors would love this mystery on the U.S. Militaria Forum (USMF) site.
  4. Thanks for the interest, vetraio50, BELLIN68, ttomtucker and tlmbaran.
  5. Based on the "notch" on the right side, I believe it is an ashtray.
  6. Excellent job.
  7. Very nicely different
  8. White hats dyed dark blue show it to be WWII vintage. Looks like they are inspecting damage to me. In fact, they are lowering a litter in photo #3.

  10. Love these and this is my favorite plane model.
  11. Scott, Here's my write-up on the ex-Apprentice distinguishing mark for USN. -dan
  12. Very cool!
  13. Notice he is wearing the ex-Apprentice program mark (figure eight knot) on his blouse/jumper.
  14. Nothing stamped on the bottom?
  15. This would go nicely with my 'Vette.
  16. Doe's the bottom have a maker name, other than "Japan"?
  17. I'm also looking for a Scripto Vu USN lighter.
  18. I collect these, also. Have you run across any USN themed Ronsons or Colibris?
  19. Showing the old and "new" design Mineman rating badges.
  20. Being 1946 it makes sense that this dragon style is close to the liberty cuffs from the early 1950s. Nice!
  21. Pre-1960s top Admirals and Generals made their own uniform regulations. There are many examples. -dan
  22. Another fine example of the Asian Eagle vs. Dragon design (often referred to as a variant of the Yin-Yang ongoing struggle).
  23. I really like this motif. I used an example like this in my book to illustrate very early Asian embroidered dragon design which later showed up on many liberty cuff designs. Thanks for sharing. -...
  24. I like this. I collect USN themed / unit specific ashtrays, also.
  25. Thanks, Scott. I'm partial to dragons and eagles. -dan
  26. I don't collect these, but I'm always intrigued by lighter than air items. Excellent piece of trench art. I love it. A related item, the USN rating badge for Chief Airship Rigger, is the only one I...
  27. Nice to see my collage put to good use. -dan
  28. See more
