WWII US Navy USN Fleet Admiral William Halsey Jr BIll Bull Belt & Buckle Gemsco:
Coming out of the estate of well known veteran collector Ray Bentley. The same Ray Bentley that had massive impressive displays at the forks of the delaware gun shows. Morphy sales of Adamstown, PA (they sold his items on November 8 2018) and Poulin sales of Fairfield, Maine sold most of his collection. Morphy sold Halsey's garrison hat lot, his flight jacket, admiral flag and some japanese swords that Halsey had from the surrender of japan. I was fortunate to be able to get into Rays estate and bought two Fleet Admiral Halsey items from it. One was his phonograph and the other is a boxed Gemsco US Navy belt, buckle sword rig. Has some wear on the edges with the stitching coming loose. The hangers are held on with leather. Marked in the inside with gold stamped W F Halsey. When I run my finger over his name I can feel every letter. Each line on the front side of the belt is done in gold bullion. 7 lines. There is one slide piece to hold the tongue of the belt into place. That slide piece has 3 gold bullion lines. The backing on the belt is all done in black leather. There is no markings of Gemsco anywhere other than the box. There is two hangers for a sword. The longest one is 25 inches from the top of the fabric to the bottom of the clip. The other hanger is 11 inches. Both hangers have 3 gold bullion lines and leather near the clip. The belt is adjustable. There is a hook for the sword too. All the hardware is well done gold plated. The buckle is your standard USN buckle. But has weight to it and really nice gilting on it. A stunner. The keeper has a floral design on it. Does show wear. The box is a 1940s gemsco box. There is no markings other than gemsco all over it. At one time it had a label on the one side but it is gone to time. High quality for a Fleet Admiral. Im almost tempted to keep it because of it history. To have something personal that you knew Halsey wore for all important meetings and events. Here's your chance to get a piece of history.
