Here are some pictures of the duffle bag I found at an estate sale this week. It appears to be painted by someone in the 9th Marines and has a very nice hand painted Mt. Fuji. I have two questions. This bag has the guys name C.A. Cook and there is a number under the USMC on the front of the bag. (1640580) I assume that this is his military serial number? Does anybody know if I can findout anymore about the soldier by this number? Also the paint on the bag is starting to flake off. How can I preserve the paint without making the bag look tacky or taking away from its value? Thanks for any help!
