    Default Full GI Foot Locker in Garbage!

    This G.I. foot locker was found in the garbage today. Some of the stuff is pretty moth eaten, but A LOT of it is in very good condition and is very cool!

    I simply do not have room for a lot of this, so much of it is for sale!

    4 side caps, all WW2 dated. I am not familiar with the one with red and white piping.


    This scarf is moth eaten, unfortunately.


    This scarf is a little dirty but is otherwise in ok shape.


    Another scarf in ok shape.


    Two Uniforms are stained but are otherwise in perfect shape. One shirt is OK... the other two... not so much...

    Uniform shirt #1


    Uniform shirt #2


    Uniform shirt #3


    Uniform shirt #4. This one is in the best shape I do believe...


    Uniform shirt #5. This one is in the worst shape.


    A liner to an officers field over coat. This thing is in amazing shape. Only one little moth nip that I could find.

    This shell casing is bigger than the 105mm that I have...



    I have no words about this raped helmet. It doesn't even appear to be WW2 vintage...

    IT'S A 6 STAR GENERAL!






    Not familiar with this compass... it's def. NOT WW2 vintage.


    Aviator glasses. It's hard to make out the marking on these... but I know for sure it says: USA. There also appears to be a square and a 58 and a 14

    These items belonged to a Lt. Gifford. This grouping includes Fort Knox orders, a picture from the 400 Club in Washington, D.C., numerous pictures from Lt. Gifford's time serving in Germany... a cool little "Onward Christian Soldiers" card, and numerous issues of Life Magazine from mostly 1942 and 1943.

    Fort Knox orders
