Topographical Scale Model Iwo Jima

Living History

I have a shadow box topographical scale model of Iowo Jima. It was left behind in a home that was sold by Thomas George, the artist from Princeton. He served with the Navy in WWII. The wood used for the box doesn’t look like it’s from the USA.

The marking on it are shown on the right hand lower corner.

Iwo Jima
Scale in Feet
1000 – 0 – 1000 – 2000 – 3000
Honolulu J.H. Sept. 1945

It’s on blue canvas and measures 26 x 20

I’ve checked google, ebay, you name it and cannot find another topographical scale except in museums. I am looking to see if anyone knows anything about it. I have pictures attached.013.JPG

I am looking to get an appraisal on it. Will be putting it up on e-bay in the next week or two if I can’t find any information about it.

Thanks and it’s good to be part of the forum.

Mike
