Check this out!! Every once in a great while you find something really special - doesn't have to be a treasure - just something having a special character. This one has it. 7 1/4" long. The bracelet is brass or copper (has a coppery colored tarnish). Hanging from the chain are the letters U.S.A. spread out at intervals, and are made from thin stamped sheet metal. They show remnants of old paint on one side U (red), S (white), A (blue). What's really neat about the bracelet is the little box hanging from the bracelet...exactly 1/2" square. Three sides have a little clear celluloid window. One side has a hinged lid with little friction clasp. Inside (and you get a hint through the windows) is a miniature, bright, full color American flag...tightly packed inside. The flag is 2 x 2 1/2" (roughly measured because it is so rumpled), and has a pattern of 6 rows of 8 stars (48 stars, before Alaska & Hawaii became states). There is another loop on the bracelet that once held something else, now gone. The bracelet has a spring/clasp. Just one great patriotic item from an very earlier period. THIS IS AN AUTHENTIC PIECE OF AMERICAN MILITARY HISTORY AND A VALUABLE COLLECTORS ITEM. FREE SHIPPING. $95.00 or any reasonable offer will be considered.
