Special Commissions: World War II Museum Collection

What better way to celebrate Independence Day than taking a trip to the National World War II Museum? The National World War II Museum is the country’s official museum of the Second World War. It tells the story of the American Experience and celebrates the American Spirit. “Founded by historian and author, Stephen Ambrose, the Museum tells the story of the America Experience in the war that changed the world – why it was fought, how it was won, and what it means today- so that all generations will understand the price of freedom and be inspired by what they learn,” according to their website. In 2000, the museum- then known as the National D-Day Museum- commissioned Mignon Faget to create special designs as gifts to dignitaries attending the official opening of this museum dedicated to World War II. Mignon designed a Higgins Boat pin and buckle to much acclaim.
