This is a set of 3 scarce World War II US Coast Guard Reserve (USCGR) Officer's dog tags named to Howard R. Glenn. There is a single tag, dated 12/42 that may have been carried as a good luck charm, as it appears to ahve been plated in silver, and a Christian Cross has been attached to it. And there is a pair, in steel, dated 02/45. Glenn's PA Veterans' Compensation Application (not included) shows he went straight from the USCG Academy into active service aboard 3 LSTs but had no overseas service.
Dog tags, each: about 1-1/2" in width by 1-1/4" in height; cross: about 11/16" in width by 1-1/8" in height.
MATERIALS / CONSTRUCTION:
1945 dog tags: steel; 1942 dog tag & cross: Nickel or Monel (possibly silver plated in the period) tag & gold plated brass cross attached with copper wire.
1945 dog tags, each: two holes for chain/string; 1942 dog tag & cross: cross attached with copper wire.
This is from a large collection which we will be listing more of over the next few months. VAJX00 LAAEX04/19
