Some of you may have these or have seen them. They were offered on a yearly basis on the 50th anniversary of each year of the war. I bought a sheet each year, then had them matted and framed and gave them to my dad for his birthday a few years back. When dad passed away last year, I brought this back home and it now graces a wall in my gunroom. I think it's pretty neat. Not sure how well the little pics on each panel with show up, but they each give history of landmark events and milestones from that particular year of the war. Sorry about the glare from the glass.

Thanks, Jim. Wish I knew a better way to share them so that you could read each of the stamps clearly. It's really interesting, especially if you are a WWII history aficionado.

Thank you for posting. I are one of them aficionado guys ( sure glad you spelled that big word) I can pretty much follow the time line and events from the pictures.
Ya might try taking the pics. without the flash.
Thanks again,
Jim

Didn't use the flash, but had one of the ceiling lights pointed at the frame b/c it is kind of in a dark corner of the room. Maybe I can try to photo it in the daylight sometime and use a tripod. I'd like for everyone to be able to read the individual stamps.
