Thought I would share my latest presentation acquisition. I’m just starting to research the history behind this piece but what I have found so far is that the National Sport Car Races were held all around the country, and about half were held on military instillations. The competitions lasted about twenty years, and then presumably the organization was disbanded. I don’t know what class this platter was for, or how many classes there were. The platter itself is number 667 of the Castleton pattern made by International Silver Company. It does have some minor surface scratches but it’s a very interesting piece that appeals to the militaria collector and the sport racing collector at the same time.
