SUBMARINE SERVICE BELT BUCKLES: Hand made with hand carving and engraving. Three buckles from seaman S.W. STUTSMAN.  There are 2 buckles; one for a sub tender and one with his name on it with the name of a submarine and a sub tender.  Pretty unique with a lot of time put in to making them.  I believe these were made in the Philippines.  (The Cavalla buckle is sold, two left)

CHALLENGE 8th ARMY PAPERWEIGHT,  KOREA: Large 2 1/2" in diameter and heavy.  Probably used as a paperweight.
Item # challenge 2_a  $4.99
WW2 WALTHAM A-11 Military Watch:  This watch has the "hack" feature which allows the watch to be easily synchronized with another watch. The hack works by pulling out the stem and the second hand stops running.  When the stem is pushed back in the watch resumes running. This watch was repaired, cleaned and oiled and worn occasionally for a year.  Then it quit winding.  The stem rotates freely etc. but it either does not engage the mainspring or the mainspring is broken; it will not wind up and run. By the serial number it was made in 1944.

EARLY U.S. NAVY SEABAG:  I believe this Navy seabag to be early due to the grommets being sewn instead of metal.  I do not know if was originally white and has stained to the brown color or if it was a brown shade to begin with.  It does have lots of staining.  It is ID'd to F.I. GROVES.  I have no information on him, but the bag came out of Illinois so research may find him.
