China Marine Cigarette Case

Recommended Posts

I bought this pre-war cigarette case from Mike Manifor at Eagle Globe and Anchor Militaria a while ago and thought it should be on the forum. I think the EGA is great. The case is steel and beautifully hand engraved and inlaid with gold and silver. It has a very fine Eagle Globe and Anchor on the front carrying the "SEMPER FIDELIS" banner. Below it is inlayed "Fourth Marines Shanghai, China" in gold lettering. Back displays two gold and three silver stars along with Chinese characters and makers mark "K24". It is a very large size cigarette case and holds two packs of cigarettes. The case measures 6-1/2" long by 3" wide and 3/4" deep.

Moderators: I posted this in the DUI section by mistake. Would you please remove the other post?
