Virginia Link and her husband Lt. Colonal Willard C. Link were in Berlin, Germany from June to August 1947. During that time they visited the rubble of the German Chancellery with their friends Major William Ryan and his wife Matilda Ryan. Virginia walking through the rubble somehow noticed what appeared to be a brass object partially covered with debris. She recovered the item, returned home, cleaned it and kept it as a keepsake.
