I had this listed in our FS section but no interest ???  I think pretty durn Neat and Rare Historical item:

 

Last week I sold on here a seal just like this from the USS General J.C. Breckenridge that a WWII USN Officer brought home. Today I got the other one it is WWII as LST 369 only used WWII.  All the info on it I could find was:   The USS LST-369 was an  American  War Ship of the LST class which operated during the  Second World War.  Below is more info I just found A historical artifact especially today.  Richard
