Ron Go online to Tiffiany Publishing Company. I believe they're based in Virginia.They sell these in addition to many other ceremonial certificates. Their work is top notch. You will need the Ships name,approximate date of crossong. They cost around $20.00 including postage. The will even print your skippers name at no extra cost,if you so desire.I've ordered numerous certificates from them,as all mine were lost in a house fire in the early 70's No i don't work for them,or have anything other than a business relationship with them. Good luck. Now all in need is a copy of my Graduation certificate from Class "A" BT School in 1963. I've tried Service School Command at Great Lakes Illinios to no avail,and U.S.Navy personell records in St Loius,MO.Any suggestions?
