A beautiful 1.5 inch brass coin with USS Lapon SS 260 battle flag and her dates of service on the front. The back is my own copyright protected design to honor our diesel boat sailors and has the following quote that I felt was perfect for this coin:
"We shall never forget that it was our submarines that held the lines against the enemy while our fleets replaced losses and repaired wounds" - Admiral Chester W Nimintz
These coins are designed and only available from me. Would make an excellent addition to your collection or for your favorite sailor!
OPTIONAL: Our Air-Tite acrylic cases provide the ultimate long-term protection for your coin. They are made of crystal clear, hard Acrylic and will never yellow over time; the foam rings are made of Volara and both are free of PVC that could damage your coin.
