|The picture shows a view of all (7) Different Old United States Coast Guard Items in this lot. Beginning at the left there is an old Coast Guard advertising match cover. On the back is a long list of Recruiting Stations. It has no matches or striker. It was in a scrap book at one time and had a little paper loss on the back.|
Next is an unused cloth patch. It has a cartoon character airplane with an IV bottle. It is marked as follows:
U.S. COAST GUARD
Next is a 1944 U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary photo ID card. It was for a Lieutenant, USCGR Reserve from the First District of Boston, Massachusetts. It expired in 1947. More information is on the back and it is signed. The card has obvious wear from being in a wallet.
The next item is a Third Naval District Liberty Card from a woman stationed at the Ellis Island Marine Hospital. The card has wear on the right edge from being in a wallet.
There isan old post card from the Coast Guard Recruit Training Center of Cape May, New Jersey. It has a message, address, and eight cent stamp but it was never post marked.
Next is a token or coin. It is made of aluminum and is in mint conditions. One side has an image of a sailing ship and the other side has an Australia outline and seal. It is marked on the two sides as follows:
USCG BARQUE EAGLE
AMERICAS TALL SHIP
TALL SHIPS AUSTRALIA 1988

The last item in this lot is a Coast Guard emblem screw back badge. It is made of brass and is probably a hat badge. It appears to be in excellent condition.
To judge the sizes the postcard measures 5-1/2'' x 3-1/2''.
