Small 5.75" Brass Ashtray found in Vet's Footlocker


Recommended Posts

This brass ash tray / plate was found in the footlocker of a man who served in the Med during WWII. I am not thinking it is a period bringback as it looks like a 1950s tourist piece. Does anyone know this piece at all? Thank you in advance.

I am actively seeking USMC Named Good Conduct Medals and items pertaining to the USS Indianapolis CA35.

Most likely purchased at a local bazaar in North Africa before he went to Italy. I have one that came from an AAF tech rep.
