Miscellaneous Items













Items found in Kassan-Stein box: two keys, one American Expeditionary
Force overseas service lapel button from World War I (Frazer, of course, was too young to have served in the First World War),
one pearl tie-tack,
one Militaires Equipements button (French), one unidentified civilian
silver plate medal (to be worn with chain around neck),
one dogtag with chain, which reads:
FRAZER
JAMES
GARDNER
LT. COL.
A T 8 41
(Rank was never indicated on issued tags, so this tag was evidently a privately commissioned novelty or "sweetheart" item. Moreover, Frazer was almost certainly not a LtCol in 1941).
