Hearst Marksmanship Trophy

A rather elaborate (OK, expensive and ugly) Citizen Marksmanship Competition lamp/trophy sponsored by the Los Angeles Examiner has been listed on EBay. Bidding on the trophy begins at $2,450.

"These charming Milwaukee girls were the first all-woman team to enroll in the citizen's rifle instruction course now being sponsored by the Wisconsin Rifle association and the Milwaukee Sentinel in conjunction with the William Randolph Hearst Citizen's Marksmanship contests,” from the Milwaukee Sentinel, Jan. 9, 1942.
