The puzzle is that my parents had our house built in the orange groves of Santa Ana, California, in 1947. There had not been any houses there before. The only other people who lived in that house were there for a few years when my family went overseas, and they were not military people. Sooo, I've always wondered how that old of an emblem came to find its way buried in our backyard. I actually didn't realize it was that old until recently when I came across it and compared it to the ones in Moran's book. As you can see, even in 1970 it had been in the ground a long time given how all the silver is worn off.
Anyway, just thought I'd share.
