Main Forum This is the site for enthusiasts of military timepieces. All discussions related to military timepieces, and watches in general are welcome. While discussing non-issued watches and homage watches is permissible, misrepresentations and/or false claims of military provenance will not be tolerated. Secondly misrepresenting oneself as either a disinterested party or posting with a secondary or ulterior agenda (i.e. shilling) will not be acceptable. Please post your own personal watches for sale on the PX (not here.) Links to watches for sale are permissable as long as they are for discussion purposes. Links to fake and counterfeit watch sites are prohibited. While not mandatory, images of guns, knives, and Ninja spikes in conjunction with your watches are highly encouraged. There is a Zero Tolerance Policy in effect for rude and inconsiderate behavior. Opinions expressed here are those of the poster, and not necessarily those of the management.

Default How should a letter of provenance read.....???

Does anyone on MWR have a correct write-up for a proper LOP?? I have some letters that I am having done up through some pretty official sources, the thing is I have never seen a properly formated LOP. Is there a standard for such things?? I looked on-line and came up blank. If anyone here has any ideas of how one of these should be worded or has an example.......Please let me know.

Also, if there are no formal layouts for these......What would you all consider to be the best way to word one of these LOPs. Yes, they will be for a few Mil-Watches !!

Thanks for any help,
SMITTY

Default If I recall correctly, the few I have seen followed a format

Which states to whom the LOP is addressed (Presumably, this would be to the current owner or whoever paid for the LOP). The letter should then describe the qualifications/relation of who ever is writing the letter. This is followed by a detailed description of the item referenced, including all serial #/identification marks (where relevant).

Finally, the provenance is detailed with as many references as available to back the claims. Photocopies/notarized copies/affidavits referred to in the body of the text of these should also be included with the letter.

Letter should be signed by individual and/or legal representative of entity providing the letter.

These is just from memory of a few I have seen in the past. Hope this helps.

Default Thanks Joe....

I was thinking on the same lines, just wondering what you all have seen in the past.

Thanks again,
Smitty

Default Tudor MN letter (more)

The paperwork that came with my old MN Tudor Sub was more tick box and fill in the blank style, but it had the same info as Joe outlined. I may have something back in my office that could work, with more prose than a simple card, that was designed for transferring registered antiquities across international borders. PM me if you still need it.
