This is an extremely collectible Sterling silver match safe that features busts of five very important people of the time; President McKinley, Admiral Dewey, Captain Sigabee, General Miles and the Hon. Fitzhugh Lee. I especially like the very detailed faces as well as the eagle above them. It is Mauser Model 42. Nicely bordered on both sides. The reverse with a monogrammed shield on a lovely feather or fern. Well-shaped. Hinged lid, match strike to bottom. All told, very much worth your consideration.
