Logan City Museum is offering for sale to the general public a strictly limited edition of unique hand made pieces of historical memorabilia associated with Australia’s involvement in the Vietnam War. These items, in the form of crosses made from melted down brass bullet shell casings recovered  (by using a metal detector) from the battlefield at Long Tan.

The crosses come in a wooden presentation box with a certificate of authenticity. The cross is attached to a “dog tag” which can be easily replaced with a gold chain if the purchaser wanted to make it an even more impressive item.
