This is a World War I “diary” mess kit. The lid includes the soldiers name and all of his stateside and overseas assignments during the War. The bottom of the mess kit is engraved with Lady Liberty with his unit designation on a banner.
This is identified to Romeo Tognazzini of Battery. F 47th Coastal Artillery Corps.
Grouping includes his dog tags. What really makes this special is that the soldier stamped all of the pieces with his Army Service number.
