    Description

    Paul Terry War-Related Art, Ephemera, and US Treasury Medallion Group of 6 (1918-1953). During World War I, Paul Terry served in the US Army. Here are some important papers from that time, including his promotion document making him a sergeant, dated May 27, 1918; a Presidential form promoting him to Second Lieutenant; and his two-page Honorable Discharge document, dated January 17, 1919. An interesting piece of original artwork in this group is from Terrytoons staffers who enlisted as Marines during WWII - a special birthday greeting signed by Carl Fallberg (who probably drew this), Art Babbitt, John Chadwick, and Stanley Seale, with notations for Nicholas Pappa-George, C. O. McElmurry, and Donald Lusk. The art is in ink and watercolor on a piece of 12 field animation background board. Finally, there's a Korean War-era US Treasury Award silver medallion given to Paul Terry, engraved with the date October 1953 on the reverse, and a US Treasury Citation awarded to Mr. Terry, dated September, 1953. Condition is Good to Very Good, with paper toning and handling wear, and minor edge wear on the medallion.
    From the Paul Terry Archive.
