In memory of my beloved husband John K Snyder… 20 Sept 1956 – 21 Oct 2016.
He loved our shops, especially Heritage Books, Maps & Ephemera – it was his baby.

He loved me, and oh how I loved him.

    Hi. I have a USS Utah matchbook that resembles your blue USS Sante cover. I know it was made by Diamond Match Company, but I’m having a hard time narrowing down the time it may have been made. The silver embossed image on the back is a battle scene between the Utah battle ship and three airplanes above it. I haven’t found any other matchbook like it online and I’m wondering if you are familiar with when this style of matchbook was made, resembling the USS Sante?

      Hello Rebekah,

      I’m afraid I don’t have any answers for you on that. My husband would have, but he tragically died a while back. I don’t know enough to comment, for which I do apologize.

      Linda
