Waltham 8 day Aircraft clock mounted in a superb wood base.

 

Purportedly from a B-17G bomber, this aircraft clock is unmarked except for "8-Days" to face and "ADJ" on the back (I have not opened it to look for more markings). It is in non-working condition and I have no idea if it just needs cleaning or more extensive work. The base in which it sits is quite beautifully made and someone went to great lengths to make an attractive presentation. Take a chance - could be the bargain of the year!

AAF Type N-6 16mm Gun Camera for P-47, P-51 fighters etc.

16mm gun camera which was installed inside the wing of fighters including the P-51, P-47, P-38 etc. and electronically activated as the gun button was pressed to record footage of actual combat with enemy aircraft. This example has the added feature of a detachable viewfinder mounted on one side, so it could also be used manually - missing from most examples. Camera is in excellent condition, with no damage or dings, just very light wear. Lens by Eastman looks very good. Back opens to receive film canister and camera is well marked. manufactured by Morse Instrument Co. of Hudson, Ohio.

Pacific war aircraft relic 3. Piece of shrapnel from a bombing raid by a Japanese "Betty" bomber.​

From the same collection as the two relics listed above, and with a note signed by the same veteran, a small piece of shrapnel, 3" long, gathered after a bombing raid on American ships during the invasion of Okinawa. Though small this is dense and heavy so is probably a piece of the bomb casing designed to inflict maximum injury. An interesting relic well worth researching and displaying in a Pacific War collection.
