    An unidentified coin is a piece of metal. An identified coin is a piece of history.

    Here's your vet; and the name of his next of kin, Santos, whose name was placed on the service tags in the event of an emergency.

    Hi ,
    Thank you all for the replay´s . My mistake was in Spelling the right name and the location (should read Ranch not Range) , sorry about it .
    I did write also to NARA and got a lot of adresses but unfortunately no web links . So back to old school, wiriting letters :-)
    When the tag is cleaned I try to post a picture
    greetings
