You can expect each Valor Block to feature exclusive and licensed items from the specific branch.
It comes with an information card that details each item in your box.
U.S. Army Est 1775 Shirt – Value $15?
The shirt I received didn’t match the shirt pictured on the card. It features a lot of the same hallmarks, though, and I think I like the black and gold version much better.
U.S. Army Pint Glass – Value $15-20 based on similar products
You’ll receive a pint glass displaying both the U.S. Army crest and a bald eagle.
It feels like a heavy-duty glass and the print has a bit of 3-dimensional texture to it.
U.S. Army Bottle Opener – Value $10-15?
You’ll get an official Army bottle opener.
It features the crest on both sides and can be used to open your bottle with either side. It’s a thick metal and will surely hold up over time.
U.S. Army 4 Pack Coasters – Value $10?
To continue stocking up on you U.S. Army drinkware – you’ll also get a 4 pack of coasters.
The material is exactly like a mousepad – it’s got non-slip on the bottom and is completely flexible. Each has the crest on top of a pixelated camo print.
Exclusive Challenge Coin: Eagle Crest – Value $5-10?
This is essentially just a coin – the ‘challenge coin’ in the name is really just a name.
It’s got the crest on each side of the coin – and seems to be very high-quality.
Verdict: The value is going to be tough to determine with these boxes since all items seem to be manufactured be Nerd Block – so they’re really setting the value. I can see this as a good gift for members of the US Army, Veterans, or for family supporting a loved one – and does include a lot of useful items in the second installment!
