Fantastic grouping of a USMC Officer Gerald R Haslop, which was recently bought from one of the family member. The grouping consists of:

- Rare early WW2 issue USMC Dogtag with thumbprint on the other side (dated <1943)
- His WW2 USMC Good Conduct Medal
- His WW2 Asiatic Pacific Campaign Medal, showing he was engaged in the pacific theatre of war
- His WW2 Victory Medal
- His WW2 American Campaign Medal + original cardboard box
- His WW2 service cap (with the name Haslop inscribed) and early rare screwback insignia
- His personal 48 star flag
- His summer campaign hat
- His personal bible
- A letter from Haslop
- A piece of Japanese ceremonial uniform? A little strap, presumably a souvenir of his pacific campaign.
- A folder of research documentation where Haslop was active durint the pacific campaign, rosters, and the most unique, his photo! etc.

Great and rare 100% original USMC officer grouping, which will look great in your WW2 USA collection! USMC estates are difficult to get, especially from an officer!
