Antique WWII luminous disks

Overview of Luminous Disks:

We have sold several of these very collectible antique disks from WWII. The disks were worn on the helmet of paratroops during the Normandy jump. At the time, these disks glowed in the dark. The Radium has long since “burned out” the Zinc Sulfide, however as the half-life of Radium is 1600 years, these disks remain essentially as active as when they were made in the 1943. They glow brightly under UV light. Incredibly, when viewed in total darkness, these disks still emit a very faint eery bluish glow - even without exposure to UV.

Note on safe handling of these disks: There is a substantial amount of Radium 226 in each disk. While these disks are literally built like a tank for war, they should not be tampered with or opened. When handling, gloves should be worn. Keep out of the reach of children and pets.
