Another Brass/ Bronze plaque story
Frank Brown GMG3 1968-69 ask his father, who worked in a foundry in NJ, to make him a ships plaque.
His father had bronze material leftover from making post office boxes and made Frank 10 bronze plaques.
Frank gave 9 plaques to the ships Captain and kept one for himself. Frank said the Captain was very happy
and also gave some out to other Captains.
If you ever see one made of bronze it will one Franks dad made.
