We recently acquired this in a veteran's consignment lot at the shop I consult at. It is beautifully made.
Is this some kind of souvenir? Some one of a kind thing that the vet had made for himself? Or?
Also, to me it seems older than WWII era, but that is just a guess. The vet's father was a Marine who served in WWI, so that's where the guess originates from.
If any of you know what this is or can steer me in the right direction, I would appreciate it greatly - as usual.
