I've seen another Imperial flag with the plastic before.
I have no clue about them but I do know there have been
About the toy Eks. I agree completely, They were never
made to deceive anyone but some collectors and dealers
don't take the time to learn the truth about they and think
they have a rare original instead of a very cool and collectible
"cereal box prize"

Hi Cadillac, An interesting item and theory!! May I suggest a second theory please? perhaps your town employed Italian POW's?? A POW is cutting the lawn and has a sit down in the sun and drops the coin. You could write a book of theories about your coin and I bet people would buy it. Coins as as good an historical item as anything else!! Most welcome and your support appreciated!!!!
Cheers Michael Ryan
PS, I like Cadillacs but I would rather have a 1960's Chevy Impala on my drive.

Thanks! I don't think it would have been a POW camp just because of the fact it's in the middle of the US. We are trying to get ahold of the records to see who lived in our house around that time. Our town was definitely a WW2 military town which is why we theorized that. The coin is actually quite rare only having 10,000 minted that year. It is Silver, and I have had it checked for authenticity. It is just a fun piece for us to have as history of our house.

Also, I like Cadillacs, but the name for me actually comes from my last name. My last name is Chrysler, so naturally when I was in the military, they all started calling me Cadillac and it just sort of stuck haha. Thanks for the feedback!

Yes, Having also served in the Military (British), I fully understand the nick name. Whilst serving on 35 Vulcan Bomber Squadron I was chrsitened "No Tracker", The theory being that my legs were so short that I must wipe out my tracks with my backside when I walked around!! So perhaps Cadillac is'nt so bad????
Chers once again Michael R

I assume this fits with the ethos of this thread Michel. Hand made representation of the colours for the 2nd Bn of the Welch regiment.
its just an opinion.

Hi Jerry, It most certainly does. I have a Victorian version, similar to yours and I like them. Many years ago, I decided to collect silks like yours and picked up two or three then they all seemed to disapear from the market and I gave up, ploncker!! My favourite was almost identical to yours but for the Lincolnshire Regiment. In relative terms, they are now pretty expencive and take up a lot of wall space but very desireable none-the-less. Very nice item and thank you for showing it!!!!!
