Rarely do I knowingly purchase items that are monogrammed. . .they are usually a "hard sell" and I shy away from them. Not the case with these napkin rings. . .beautiful silverplate napkin rings. . .mint condition and engraved USMC 1992. Yes they belonged to someone in the United States Marine Corp. And now they are going to live with another Marine Corp retiree in South Carolina. Hope your husband loves them Sherry.
