Pearl Harbor relic headed to museum after auction

By Associated Press

HONOLULU (AP) A relic from a Japanese fighter jet used in the attack on Pearl Harbor is headed to a museum after selling for more than $12,000 in an eBay auction.

The Honolulu Star-Advertiser reports that a Honolulu attorney bought the item and donated it to the Pacific National Monument.

The relic is a serial number from a Zero fighter that crashed during the attack. The number was stenciled on the plane's fuselage.

Chief Historian Daniel Martinez of the World War II Valor at the Pacific National Monument says he was stunned by the donation pledge. He has said similar items are rarely donated if they are bought privately.

Damon Senaha says he bought the item in tribute to his Japanese-American family, including his grandfather who witnessed the 1941 attack.
