Interesting shipping box named to Lt. Col. James Sperry, USMC, Iwo vet. He was S-1 (regiment) for I think it was in the 6th Marines. Box measures 29.5x17.5x12.5. The shipping label on the side is from the S.S. Independence which sailed 16 July 1957. I was able to find a photo of Lt. Col. Sperry on facebook. I added a heavy glass top and it makes a nice coffee table. I thought I would post this here before putting it up for sale.

Lt. Col. James Sperry. I am sure more information about Sperry can be found.
