The Battle of Iwo Jima took place on the island of the same name over the course of 35 days between February 19, 1945, and March 26, 1945. The battle was considered vital to the US effort to island-hop through the Pacific Ocean toward the home islands of Imperial Japan. To capture the island, the United States mobilized one of its largest forces ever to invade and capture the island.
Departing from Hawaii, the United States Marine Corps and United States Navy steamed toward the island with 110,000 US Marines and some 880 ships. Participating on the US side was the 5th Amphibious Corps with three US Marine divisions and the 147th Infantry Regiment, the 7th Air Force, and the US 5th Fleet. Though the 35-day battle delivered a number of iconic photos and moments, none is more memorable than the sight of six US Marines raising the American flag at the highest point of the island.
30 oz Antique Finish Silver Iwo Jima Statues depict the moment when US Marines had successfully fought their way to the top of Mount Suribachi, the highest point on the island of Iwo Jima. One the US Marines had reached the summit, they sought to deliver a morale boost to American forces by raising the American flag over the island. Though the battle was not quite over, the raising of the American flag pointed to the inevitable. The Americans were not going to give up and would fight on to the end.
These 30 oz Antique Finish Silver Iwo Jima Statues are available with protective packaging materials. All of the statues have an antique polish that highlights the intricate design elements. The statues also come with laser-etched details on the base pointing to the weight, purity, and the serial number of the item.
