I wanted to post this US Navy grouping I purchased awhile ago, a US Navy officer's pilot grouping consisting of two (2) belt buckles, three (3) cig lighters, three (3) pilot wings, one (1) "CHAIR" pilot wngs, three (3) sets of dogtags, and a brick w/dedication
The officer appears to have been on the USS Enterprise, CVAN-65, when it went on a cruise in 1967. The belt buckle and ZIPPO lighter have the "USS Enterprise, CVA(N)-65.
One belt buckle is really nice and heavy...w/USN pilot wings, "FAR EAST AREA", "VP-47" and the pilots name "GORDON S. PETERSEN"
One "Prince Rocky" lighter has "USS Yorktown, CVS-10, The Fighting Lady" on one side and on the other engraved "LT.G.S.PETERSEN, 86000th LANDING, 27 OCT. 1962"
One "Vulcan" lighter has "SAM PETERSEN, NAS AGANA, GUAM, 5E6 ACIE DUCIE" and on the other side is "DUVA IS DEVINE"
Two (2) clutch back USN pilot wings..and one (1) is marked "1/20 10K" and "250" while the other isn't marked.
One (1) pin-back USN pilot wings is hallmarked "LGB 1/20 10KGF"
One (2) set of "CHAIR PILOT" Gold wings......guess when he got promoted....he started "piloting a chair/desk" ...really cool piece
Two (2) sets of regular dogtags w/same ser#s and one (1) set of "old" Oval dogtags for the same "GORDON SAM PETERSEN" w/different ser#.
A red brick from an Officer's Club at Sandy Point dedicated.
I also found a picture of LtCdr Petersen as the Communication Officer for the USS Enterprise in the 1967 cruise book. In addition, I found LT Petersen listed in the USS Yorktown 1962 Cruise book listed in the VS-23 (Air Anti-submarine Sqaudron). He is in the front row, the 3rd officer from the left.
