I with great joy saw a print of you in the middle, with two ladies on each side holding three seagulls. I have the exact three made by the Masketeers, Inc. of Belington, W. Virginia. They are from the early 60s. The wood is black walnut,with the wings of anodized aluminium. These came from a dear friend’s home, which was built in 1949-1950. The label is still perfect on the back, and I am placing these on Ebay as she is now in assisted living and I am selling her items. A small note, she was one of 200 women in WW2 (NAVY), that key punched data accumulated from Japan’s coded messages. The punched cards by these ladies were loaded into, at that time, an unknown super computer. These ladies did indeed helped bring Japan to there knees and end the war. They received only a ribbon, highly secret, then three years later the medal. It is a great story, as this being a time that women were not recognized.
What a wonderful story, George – thank you for sharing, I’ll be on the lookout for your ebay postings. And readers, be sure to check out the “original” post on the vintage Masketeers seagulls or, M R Dux…? The most hilarious comment string in Retro Renovation history.
