    This is mid-late 1940's post-war Army and Navy Needlebook. - There are more than 20 different kinds of Army & Navy Needle Books with different variations. For example the classical "Iowa" single ship was exported from Germany, Czechoslovakia, Japan, and was sometimes just marked "Foreign". The single ship kind comes named as Maryland, Massachusettes, No Name, etc. in addition to Iowa. These needle books often vary in color and have different illustrations on the backs. These needle books were never sent to soldiers. They were marketed to the home crowd, and never during a war, but afterwards. They were usually produced by our former enemies.
    This one has a cover picture of the U.S. warship "Iowa" and is noted as Made in Germany (in red on right side of front, black ink on lower left of back). It contains small packages of "Royal" sharps in two remaining packets of No. 5 size and one remaining packet of No. 1 size in addition to three eye needles remaining in the side holder. The packaging is slightly damaged, (seems granny had a mouse living in her sewing box).
