    Default Some of my Latest Finds

    Hi All,
    Some time has passed so I thought I would share some of my latest finds.

    The first group of items were acquired from a friend of mine. In his own words, he's becoming a minimalist...Which basically means he has too much crap, so he has to clear some out! Don't worry though, I made a fair trade...

    First up is a M69 Practice Hand Grenade.

    Up next is M1917 helmet. Lot # is D/F106. It's missing its chinstrap and the liner has seen better days, but overall in good shape..

    A small collection of pennants from the 1920's or 1930's.These were distributed as a giveaway by local bread distributors in the US, most notably Holsum Bread.

    There were well over a hundred different pennants that you could collect, each depicting military vessels of different countries that were in service from about 1910 to the late 1920’s. Each pennant measures 12"” x 3”".

    And last part of the items from my friend is a nice September 12th, 1918 dated yard long for the 520th Motor Truck Co. Some slight damage on the left side of the photo, but other than that in good shape.

    Final items are a WWII USMC grouping I picked up from a local thrift shop.

    The items are named to REICHERT, W.C. This Marine was part of FMF PAC (Fleet Marine Force - Pacific).

    I've tried researching the name, however have had no luck...The group consists of two (2) overseas caps, one (1) EM/NCO Visor Cap, and two (2) uniforms; first one is his uniform as a Private and the second as a Corporal

    I've ordered replacement EGA's for the garrison hats.
