Absolutely amazingly cool! Thanks for sharing! Always love seeing the give-away promotional things! Wonder Bread had (IMO) the coolest building in the "Century of Progress". Sadly, no cool souvenirs like this, as their "souvenir" section was a cafeteria!


Thanks for posting photos! I like the dial part. Never seen one like this before!


If you ever want a custom hand-embroidered (no machine) patch, I'm open to commissions! Pay or trade!
For an idea of my military collecting interests and wish list, see my profile page!
Looking for Old-Style US Coast Guard Commendation Medal (w/ or w/o ribbon)!

Oh, tarry and be strong; Tell God in prayer. What is thy hidden grief; Thy secret care.

Yet, if no answer come; Pray on and wait: God's time is always best; Never too late.

Great WWII homeland piece! Love that stuff (Then & Now) Bobgee

"I have only two men out of my company and 20 out of some other company. We need support, but it is almost suicide to try to get it here as we are swept by machine gun fire and constant barrage is on us. I have no one on my left and only a few on my right. I will hold." (Message sent by 1st Lt. Clifton B. Cates. USMC, 96th Co., Soissons, 19 July 1918 - later 19th Commandant of the Marine Corps 1948-1952)

I have the following certificate:

On May 28, 1942, a distant relative of my wife's was awarded a certificate from The United States Navy, which reads as follows: “The United States Navy….hereby confers upon Kenneth Marcellus the honorary rank of Master Aircraftsman in recognition of war-time service in making in accordance with specifications approved by the Bureau….Scale Model Aircraft for use by the Government of the United States. The model was used by spotters. Kenneth was 17 years old at the time and a senior in high school in Brentwood, Mo.
