Recently acquired from a local estate sale in Key Largo, Florida. 50 plus year collection of goodies from a Maritime Salvage Diver.
I have (5) of these bronze (could be brass but thought to be bronze) plaques. Another has been held for a friend, so now there are only 2 available. Original condition (thought to be vintage World War II era from my research) with various stages / levels of patina and some light rust stains from another source of iron where they were stored. First come, first serve can pick 1-4 if they prefer a certain patina look. Two of the the photos are of the (5th) piece that I cleaned with a mild acid boat bottom hull cleaner to show how they can be cleaned up if you prefer.The photo mounted on my wall (green background) was taken just day(s) after the quick acid bath and you can see how much in has naturally darkened again. The raised bosses in the middle of the shield shaped badges are for stamping in specific identification.
These are all virgin (unstamped) pieces, so you could also get creative and stamp to your liking i. Birth or special dates, names, 007, etc.
Unique decoration for your nautical, military or diving theme. Man cave, garage, bar, etc.Approximately 9" x 4-1/4" x 3/16 thick shield shaped. Each weigh approximately 1lb 9oz.
