For those who may not know “Mustang” is a slang term in the United States Armed Forces, referring to a commissioned officer who began his or her career as an enlisted service member. This sword case was done in Ca. Red Oak, stained Early American and finished with clear lacquer. The mustang in the box was obtained at a local car dealer parts dept. It is the grill ornament for a Ford Mustang. I have used these a number of times. They are easy to get, light weight and look cool in the box.

I didn’t know that about the term mustang. I do know its difficult for an enlisted man to make the transition.

Very nice case. You are a busy man!
