Has anyone ever seen one of these? Found it at the flea market this morning, was too cool to pass up. About the size of a baseball card.Posted Image

I have a similar one from an admiral's son... USS Mississippi. More closely resembles a Neptune Certificate with its topless mermaids.

Yes, I have two of them belonging to a member of a sub present at Tokyo Bay during the surrender.  I agree they are very cool, nice find!

Second time in two days Ive seen one of these. Never knew they existed before. Would love to have one. What are they valued at?
