    Default piece of kamikazi that hit the USS Missouri collectable?

    my grandma asked me if she could sell these 2 metal strips from a kamikazi my grandafather was on thie missouri. when the kamikazi that hit and half it broke off and the other half stayed with like half the body. when they put out the fire i they cut a big piece off the kamikazi and when back downstairs in the room all the friends broke off pieces of it.

    would anyone buy them off my grandmother??

    Hi Lostowl, and welcome to the forum.

    I presume the strips are pieces of a WWII Japanese airplane ?
    Could you post photos please.....................?

    Hopefully, the pieces will be identifiable to a WWII Japanese aircraft. Otherwise, they would have little or no value. Looking forward to some good photographs.

    this is first time i seen them after hearing about them my whole life because they was burried in the basement nog what i expected. gramps is dead grandma knows the whole story but she going down and would be nice for her to get a lil money and be happy. there is this 1942 franc coin in with the pieces my grandma dont know why. i assume somewhere the missourri stopped in 1942.

    Νοt bad at all! 2 questions first : are you sure for the origins of these pieces and what is the price?

    Somebody with metallurgy knowledge as well as a huge working knowledge of construction of Japanese aircraft might be able to verify what these are. Without some markings, it is very hard to say that these came from such a plane. I cannot make out the coin at all.

    The coin is a franc and should have a date on it , as from where it came from, i dont think the Missouri berthed in france but i may be wrong, there again it could have been picked up in some other port of call.
