Miniature Anvil Military Pearl Harbor Mini Uss Argonne Trench Art Fw Connor Wwii For Sale

Miniature Anvil Military Pearl Harbor Mini Uss Argonne Trench Art Fw Connor Wwii

I JUST PICKED THIS fresh this morning! It was with other military items but I only purchased this one since it was so unusual and had nice identifiable characteristics. So what we have here is a miniature anvil that I think is made of either brass, bonze, copper or some combination of those metals. It measures about 3 7/16" long by about 1 1/4" high and is thick, solid and heavy. It reads on top "F.W. CONNOR, COMMANDING OFFICER, U.S.S. ARGONNE". If you look up this information it turns out that F.W. Connor was indeed the Commanding Officer of the USS Argonne when Pearl Harbor was attacked on December 7th 1941. The Argonne sustained only minimal damage and shot down 1 Japanese bomber. The crew assisted in taking bodies from the water and retrieving the wounded from damaged ships. I can not tell if this paperweight was made in a factory or was machined. So this could be trench art so to speak. It is in very nice shape with typical wear and a wonderful warm patina from age and handling. This is the precise condition I purchased it in this morning so it is all original in that regard. I would assume that this sat on the commanders desk and served as a paperweight. It may have been a gift made on the ship and given to him by crew members? This is certainly an important piece of WWII Pearl Harbor History. Buyer pays shipping fee based on zip-code. Paypal accepted. PA residents add 6% sales tax.
