    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:

      We sold it to China? Turns out to be the other China so it is OK.

      Lol. Whenever I look at an old mug and it says China on the bottom it makes me wonder if it is American or not even if I am sure it is American.. I have some newer mugs and not sure if they are Chinese or American...
