|The picture shows a view of all (16) Small World War II United States Homefront Patriotic Items in this lot. This is an accumulated lot with a variety of items. Included in this lot are the following items:|
There is a red, white, and blue vinyl ladies change purse with two service stars. The back side has the same dark blue color. It is not marked and the maker is unknown. The purse has over all age cracking on the surface.
There is a pair of red, white, and blue plastic clip on earrings. These patriotic earrings are nicely designed with layers of color cut with angles. They are made of plastic and each has two sections. They are not marked and the maker is unknown.
Next, at the top in the picture, is a miniature U.S. Army uniform hat. It has the Army insignia on the front and on the top of the hat. It is made of brass metal and dark blue plastic. It may have been part of a jewelry pin or a charm. We have seen some of these that opened up like a locket with a photograph. This one however, does not open. It is not marked and the maker is unknown.
There are (9) miniature cloth service star flags. We are not sure how these were used or acquired, but a service star flag has stars representing the number of family members you have serving in the military. These are made of woven thread and all of them have one star.
There is a small Victory Liberty Loan tin pinback button. It is in dark blue and white and it is marked on the two sides as follows:
MADE BY AMERICAN ART WORKS
Next there is a celluloid Third Liberty Loan clothing button. There is still thread and cloth on the back. It is in red, white and blue and it has an image of the Liberty Bell. It is marked:
THIRD LIBERTY LOAN
The last item in this lot is a red, white, and blue ticket stub. We do not know what the even was because it is torn in half, but there is a ''Defense Tax'' included and there is a reference on the back to Marines. It may have been a discounted event ticket for a U.S. Serviceman. It can only be partially read:
MASS. AM ????
???? IN SERVICE OF, AND
?????MS OF THE UNITED
?????Y, OR MARINES
To judge the sizes the purse measures 4'' x 4-1/4''. These items appear to range from good to mint condition as pictured.
