My second $.45 military themed vitreous china coffee mug find today. The mug appears to be a standard American diner mug but it does not have a maker's mark. Most examples of Mil-Art mugs I could find were marked either "Victor" or "USA". Pretty sure that this is an American made diner mug, but not sure of the maker. I don't think Mil-Art made pottery. In new condition, as was the other Navy themed mug I found next to it. It may have come from the possessions of a career service member in the Navy who collected mugs for each ship they served on.
Another ship with a very interesting history. The Wikipedia article is well worth reading:
