The bazooka is the commonly used term for a rocket-propelled anti-tank weapon. It was developed by the United States Army as the first-ever anti-tank weapon for use by infantry in combat situations. The solid-propellant rocket launched from the bazooka gave infantry a tool to fight back against armor and the American bazooka debuted during World War II.
Bazookas earned the nickname stovepipe for the distinctive appearance of the launching tube used to propel the round downrange. Bazookas have evolved with time into shoulder-fired missile systems capable of destroying modern tanks, eliminating fortified enemy positions, and even launching ground-to-air rounds at fixed-wing aircraft and helicopters.
These 5 oz Antique Finish Silver Soldiers Collection Stovepipe Sterling Silver Statues are available from Heads or Tales coins as a 1:24 replica of an infantryman wielding the same weapon. The statues all depict a World War II-era American infantryman kneeling down as he hoists the bazooka over his shoulder and looks through the sights to locate his target. On the ground at his feet are extra rounds to fire if his first shot misses.
Each of the statues in this collection features HotCos proprietary antique polish. Not only does this polish give the finished product the patina of age, it also gives the statue an heirloom quality perfect for any collection. On the base of the individual statues, youll find the laser-etched serial number and purity of the statue.
All of these 5 oz Antique Finish Silver Soldiers Collection Stovepipe Sterling Statues is available to you with a protective box and comes with a numbered Certificate of Authenticity. The serial number on the base matches that of the included COA.
