Army Navy Field of Honor Chess Set

Offered here is the handsome Hamilton Authenticated Army Navy Field of Honor Chess Set. This set is absolutely striking with precise hand-painted detail. The die cast metal pieces vary in size. The King is 3-1/4″ high, and the Queen is 3″ high. The Rooks are soldiers holding flags and are significantly taller. Each of the chessmen is precision-crafted and hand-painted. The bases are cast in pewter and electroplated in gold. Additionally, each base is banded in enamel with Marine scarlet or Navy blue. Felt bottoms protect the chess board, which serves as the top of the storage case.

The pieces depict Soldiers and sailors from the US Army and U.S. Navy. The two service branches include a Bell AH-1 Cobra Attack Helicopter and an SH-60 Sikorsky Seahawk Helicopter, which represent two of the Knights. A McDonnell Douglas Harrier Av8B and a McDonnell Douglas F/A18 Hornet are the other two Knights. Flag bearers serve as the Rooks. Chief Warrant Officers and Drill instructors are among the other elements of the two armies.

These realistically detailed playing pieces are accompanied by a certificate identifying each of the pieces and an overview of the personnel in each branch of the two services. The storage case itself measures 17″ X 17″ X 4″. The Eagle, Globe, and Anchor emblems adorn the four sides of the Mahogany storage box.  The case can be mounted as a wall-hung display as shown in the gallery.

This Army Navy Field of Honor Chess Set was a subscription from the Bradford Exchange and made by Hamilton. Each piece originally cost $24.95 through the subscription. These are extremely hard to find in complete, used condition. This set is from the estate of a former military serviceman. The chess set is in excellent condition.
