  6. I would guess this could be considered a homefront item? This old book, loaded with wartime cartoons from Yank Magazine, was given by a father to his son who was in the military. I don't think there's a WWII vet living who has not heard of the "Sad Sack".
  7. No, as the stem stub is loose and comes out easily.
