Hi There~ My name is ***** ***** I am here to help with your question. At your convenience, please send more photos. A full image with the design and a clear, in-focus close-up of the note on the box. When taking a clear close-up try using the macro function on your camera. It looks like a small flower icon. This will allow sharper focus at a closer-range. There may be an +Add Files button or if there is a toolbar with a paperclip icon showing above the box where you type in responses, then follow the steps on this link for sharing photos: http://ww2.justanswer.com/how-do-i-send-photo-or-file-expert I look forward to seeing the images. If you are unable to send photos right away, that is fine – there is not a time limit here. Sincerely,Nora

Hello,
You mention in your original posting that these are from Mussolini's tomb during WWI (1914 - 1918).
Mussolini was executed at the end of WWII in 1945 and his remains were not officially moved to his family crypt after 1957.
May I please know how it came about that your information is that these were in his tomb during WWI?

It was handed down through the family that the solider that sent the silverware to Lisa's grandmother said that is where the silverware came from.
