Someone devised a great "cat" Navy token on a 1942 Merc Dime. Notice the Navy cap and the whiskers, as well as the .45 cal pistols, one in each hand. Really neat!

Hellcat or Wildcat- I would say Hellcat, as it was a HUGELY better fighter plane than the wildcat.

Based on the date of the host coin and the design of the figure carved into the " love token" I would be looking for H Hollingworth in some WWll navy records or even merchant marines...being a proper name it might shed light on its origin

Neat "trench art" and done afloat most likely!

Good thing that '42 dime's not an overdate!

On the U.S. Navy Muster Rolls 1938-1949, I see only one "H Hollingworth" (as opposed to the many "Hollingsworth" entries).
