USMC M67 "Zippo" Vietnam War Tank Instruction plate

This is the refuelling data plate for an M67 tank used by the United States Marine Corps in the Vietnam War.

The M67 was a flamethrower tank and nicknamed the "Zippo". A picture of one in use is shown in the last picture and details on the design and development are shown here:

This plaque is made of brass with etched images and text - enamelled in red and dark blue.

The top of the plaque has the drawing of the turret of the tank that shown the two turret crew seats, the large tank for fuel and the position of this plate at the top Right with arrow for Fueling Instructions plate.

Only 109 of these tanks were made and it was the last flamethrower tank made by the US military.

The position of the two crew seats next to a large tank of fuel made them susceptible to explosions.

A very rare item. Very aesthetic with the coloured enamel
We have mounted it on a piece of elm hardwood and will add a slot hangar to the rear to allow it to be wall mounted.

It is 30 cm tall x 20.5 cm wide. The plaque is 11 inches x 7.25 inches.

Vision blocks from WW2 Tanks - from the commanders Cupola.

From an American tank used in WW2.

The vision (commanders ) cupola design was first used in the M4 Sherman and then was carried over into the M24 Chaffee and the M26 Pershing. This vision block came from France. The part number painted onto the top edge is not the same as the one used on the M4 so likely from a Chaffee or a Pershing.

It is made from steel with four layers of glass which are tapered to fit and are held by putty inside the frame.

There are traces of white paint around the inside edge so it was used in a tank

There is also a small chip on the inside glass face.

Measures 20 cm wide, 11 cm deep and 5 cm high and weighs 3kg

Price £115 plus postage

WW1 Royal Navy Battleship Turret model Bowl

A highly detailed solid brass model of a 15 inch turret from HMS Barham.

This model came to us on a broken wooden plaque with a date of 1926 to 1928. We assume a model made for an officer leaving the ship.

It has two parts - the turret and a lower brass disc that it is bolted through.

We have replaced the broken wood plaque with a hand turned ebony bowl.

The bowl is 5 inches x 3 inches,

We have turned a second piece of ebony and mounted the turret in it.

The turret rotates on its mount.

We have added the original copper plate with ships emblem, name and date - to the underside of the ebony lid.

The bowl can be used as a storage vessel.
