      A 1911 NAVY with a history......

      I acquired this beautiful Navy along with all equipment listed in the receipt several years ago from Lt. Bush's family in Seattle..

      Lt. Bush was the Communications Officer aboard the USS MINNESOTA, and went to Russia in 1919 with the AEF after WW I. The grip inlay was done in the Phillipines in 1922..
