What is really not to love about this brass pull-chain rosary that is Government Issued and this is the very cream of the crop when it comes to the rugged rosaries that were used in these wars, like World War I & World War II. This is actually a rosary that the government issued to all soldiers fighting in the war that wanted them. The Chaplains usually received Sterling Silver rosaries, so this was not an option for them. The rosary is great, and I really love the color on this so if it sells that is OK, but if it does not sell, I will just keep it, as I really like it that much. I try to be very calm and cool about selling my rosaries, but there are times when it is hard for me to let go of them. Then what I do is to quickly put it into the box, or envelope that I am sending it out to and put it in the mail very fast. Then I don't dwell on the rosary and just tend to forget about it. I have a rosary coming up this week that is a real deal and a rosary that is in a museum so it is "Heirloom Quality" through & through. I have proof that it is in a museum, and that it is highly sought after and hard to find anywhere. It will be starting at $1,000. so you will not be able to miss it. I sold one last year, and thought that I would not let go of it, but I did and was fortunate enough through my contacts that I have had for the last 40 to 50 years and I have another one. But on with this rosary today. It is 16 1/2" long with a drop of 7" and a circumference of 19". The rosary weighs 25 grams, not much but then who needs weight when you have "quality". This is a genuine military issue rosary except for the cross & center medal which I did change as it was very bad on the cross & the center medal. But this rosary is so cool, and I love the color of the brass and to hold it is to love it. There is nothing wrong with loving a rosary. It is like we love our teddy bears & dolls as they are representing our parents, or authority as we are growing up. Not that we know it at the time, but it all comes out when we are grown and then know what it was about the bear or doll at the time and the love that it so much deserved. So does rosaries, as they are objects that will help us to get to Heaven. There are 2 things that can defeat the devil, that is the rosary and the scapular. No machine gun, or grenade launcher or gatteling gun, or rocket blaster, but a rosary and a scapular, which by the way, will also save your soul. Pray people as the time for Our Lord to come is soon, and we do not have that much time on our hands to waste, it is now or never. See to your soul, it is the most precious thing that you have, and if you don't see to it, then Satan will have his way with you. Me, I would rather be with Our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, and the Blessed Virgin Mary, His Mother, Our Mother. Concentrate, pray, pray, and pray. It is not going to kill you to do this but if you don't then I can only say that I tried to warn you before it was too late. Don't think that I am just another person who is telling you to get going or you will be lost to the darkside. It is true, and please heed my words, as they are only trying to save your soul because you are a very important human being, and Our Lord died on the cross for each and every one of us. If there were only one person on this earth when Christ came to die for us 2,000 years ago, then He still would die for the one person who was here. That is unconditional LOVE, and Jesus Christ deserves much more then you can ever hope to give to Him. But if you will try to help yourself and your family then you have the attention of Our Lord. Jesus does not stand before you and give you commands to follow because He died for your sins, and my sins and everyone's sins in this world. He gives you the choice, and if you don't make the right choice, then you will lose your soul to the evil one. You can save yourself & all those who you love, and you really don't need me telling you this but maybe this is a wake up call, and you were thinking about it but just did not get to it yet. Don't forget...
