Seeking a rare WWII Bible

I had a question recently by someone who is searching for a rare Bible given to soldiers in WWII. It is red leather with gold trim, King James Version, National Edition, by the Philadelphia National Bible Press(First Page), On the second page it it states Copyright,1941, by National Publishing Company and is numbered 1-100. These bibles were given out by Roosevelt's wife,when the troops were sent to England in 1941. If you know of one of these Bibles would you please contact me? I will forward the information to the interested party.

  1. Received a similar book as donation to our thrift shop. Red Leather with gold trim, New Testament, No date, Publisher American Bible Society. Inside front cover has form for "Name, "Address, "Nearest Relative."

    First page has typewritten letter: "The White House Washington" "As Commander-in-Chief I take pleasure in commending the reading of the bible...." Signed "Franklin D. Roosevelt"

    Would someone be interested in this book?
