USS Akron (ZRS-4)


Recommended Posts

I picked up this letter opener over Christmas vacation at an antique shop. I already had the "medal", but thought the two would go good together. I show both sides of both items in the image.


I guess a lot of Duralumin momentoes of different kinds were made by Goodyear in the early 30's when they built the Akron.


The Akron flew from Nov. 2, 1931 until she was lost at sea off New Jersey on April 3, 1933 with the loss of 72 lives.
