Yeah, they are unique and I am aware of their history, especially with the U-505. A vessel captured from the enemy is something that was not done by the U.S. Navy for a very, very long time. Plus to capture an enigma machine and code books was extremely important to the war effort

Now you need to find a 40mm ammo crate for the display you'll eventually set up......

Nice looking, but I don't think I'll be making a display that big. Probably just put them on the shelf with the rest of my collection
