Now I see 'em..........!
They look like a miniature set from here. Odd though, with only the one post for a clutch.
( full size are about 1.5 inches wide ) Because these are worn, I can see bronze
under the plating. This would indicate recent/modern, probably 60's.
Normally full size badges should have two posts, or a pin-and-catch arrangement
and a makers mark. WWII type are mainly sterling.............
Thanks for the response, Steve!
I think the pictures make the jump wings look a tad smaller than they actually are. I'll see if I can find a ruler to put into the picture with them. Either way, I think they're a good snag for free! Hopefully I can make some money on them.
These just came in with the trash:
US WW2 mess kit. The mess kit itself it marked: U.S. E.A. Co. 1944. The spook is marked: U.S. The knife is marked: U.S. L.F. & C. 1945
This is a first edition of Eddy Rickenbacker's "Seven Came Through" from 1943.
Oddly enough, it looks like the mess kit has a WWI style lid to it...?
Not a garbage find, but still a woodwork find!
I sent a school-wide e-mail out in the high school I work at asking for militaria to use in the classroom. I've had a few teachers come forward with pieces of militaria they would let me borrow to use in my lessons...
The secretary in the main office... a tiny, quiet, mousey woman... the most unassuming person ever... gave me this 1945 marked ammo pouch! She is the last person in the whole world that I would have thought would give me militaria!
I can barely read the ink stamp on the back... I think part of it says: LEE 1945
Not bad for free! !
Here you go, Seb!
The helmet looks very good to me. If you want to sell it send me an mail. You find my mail on my site. militaria-pictures.com
