BATTLE OF BASTOGNE "NUTS" WALL PLAQUE
Octagonal brass plaque, 5 1/4" wide, depicts two large military figures standing over the Belgian town of Bastogne. The plaque symbolizes the pres entation of the German surrender ultimatum to Gen. Anthony McAuliffe at Bastogne on Dec. 22, 1944. McAuliffe replied “Nutsâ€, which appears in relief at the top of the plaque. The piece also includes the American and Nazi flags and parachutes representing the 101st Airborne Division. "DECBER 44", which is when this battle took place, is also lightly cast in the plaque. These plaques are said to have been made by melted down artillery casings. Very good.
