The picture below shows a larger view of all (9) Old United States Navy Ship U.S.S. Constitution Old Ironsides Advertising Souvenir Items in this lot. The three older linen type postacrds were mailed in 1942 and 1943 by U.S. Navy Sailors during World War II with no stamps and free postage. All three were from Newport, Rhode Island, and sent to different Portsmouth, New Hampshire addresses. One other postacrd here has the ship at the Boston Navy Yard at night with lights. The other items are not dated and the years that they were made are unknown.

Other items included here are an old square shaped ceramic pitcher that pictures the U.S.S. Constitution. It would look great at a bar, tavern, or pub. There are (2) old pinback buttons. These are similar, but with a different print and pin on the backs. They both picture the sailing ship and are marked as follows:

U.S.S. CONSTITUTION
“OLD IRONSIDES”
LAUNCHED OCT. 21, 1797

There is a smaller advertising souvenir pin, with the back section, that also pictures the ship and reads:

“OLD IRONSIDES”
BOSTON

The final item here is an unused advertising souvenir sticker. It pictures the ship and reads:

WE VISITED
U.S.S. CONSTITUTION
“OLD IRONSIDES”

All nine of these U.S.S. Constitution items for one price! To judge the sizes the three linen post cards each measures about 5-3/8'' x 3-3/8''. These items appear to be excellent to mint unused condition as pictured.

Below here is some additional Historical, reference, and background information from the Ship's official website:
