An important part of military service was performed by the Coast Guard during World War 2. Here's a fun souvenir sachet probably given to a wife or girlfriend. Made in the shape of panties, the sachet is covered in satin fabric printed with rose flowers.
Edged with satin trim and a satin ribbon for hanging. Bows and rosettes are an added sweet touch to this very feminine trinket....except for possibly the wording. U S Coast Guard is printed on one leg. Filling is probably cotton fill.
Size is 6-1/2" x 5-1/2"
