You are guaranteed to not be disappointed. They look like brand new. They came from an estate auction of someone in Maryland who had a military collection. He had been in the Army and was stationed in a number of places in the US. One of these places was California although I don't know if it was the Mare Island base. But they look just like the ones that came from the cache found there and I have little doubt that is where they were from. Stamps are clear and center caps are tight and original. I was able to screw them all into a bushing.
