Look what I found

Recommended Posts

Went to a BIG flea/collectors market last week-end. Found some good stuff. I saw this on a table laying brim down and couldn't see the tally. I asked how much and the guy said $5 I said deal. I didn't know what I had until I pulled it out of the bag.

That's what it is. I must admit I was shocked when I saw the tally. w00t.gifw00t.gif

Nope, it's U.S. Maritime Service, just like the poster confirmed. I just learned about it yesterday, myself. Read about it here:

Finding this hat as I said was totally unexpected and enhances my Merchant Marine collection. This I think is my first uniform piece, the rest is paperwork and photos.

I have always liked Merchant Marine stuff. It is VERY hard to find.

Great catch.

Those boys really took a shellacking during the war in the Atlantic from German U-Boats especially on the Murmansk Russia runs, many died in service to keep our allies supplied at critical times.


This DAY of FREEDOM brought to you by current Military Personnel and Veterans.

! HAVE A NICE DAY !
