Usually Ships in 1 to 2 Business Days
This small grouping of matching artifacts for a female is composed of a very well dated autograph diary and a pair of matching named dog tags with both of their connecting chains. The autograph diary is 84 pages in length with about 80% of the single sided pages filled in with autographs and period reminisces from friends and acquaintances alike. The dates found in this interesting little autograph book range from as early as 1938 when Arax was still in high school, to as late as in 1945 when she was then in the Women's Army Corp as a "WAC".
There are many interesting little ditties written by her friends. Some of the entries read like this: "Remember the girl from the city, Remember the girl from the town, Remember the girl who spoiled your book by writing upside down......Remember Big Chief Pain In The Neck.....Charlotte Williams", and others like: Roses are red, Cabbage is green, My face is a riot, but your's is a scream....best of luck, Ryan-isky", and so they go on and on throughout this neat little rare book. This historical little book is in EXCELLENT PLUS CONDITION. It includes Arax's full name and address as well, which is very rare. To complete this book Arax attached her 2 dog tags which are still attached to their 2 original dog tag chains. As you would expect, the dog tags have Arax's full name and serial number to add provenance to this grouping. The dog tags are in MINT CONDITION as well.
Comments from the Curator:
This is a really cool little grouping al documented as belonging to the same WAC woman. It is almost impossible to find such complete autograph books these days since they were almost never discarded because of their great sentimental value. The mnay pages of interesting little ditties makes for a lot of fun reading. These entries clearly show how much friendship and camaraderic there was between WAC service women back in those war time days. This book is even more valuable since the entries written in it start well before the war in the 1938 period. This is an impossible to beat mini-grouping with perfect provenance for a war time WAC.
