    Buy me a belt and buckle and I'll pay you 30 bucks more to the price or something like that. I know you wouldn't do such a thing though. Haha! Damn that looks like heaven right there. All those goodies I'll never get to touch .

    Hi Mike, that is a very nice pith, but I would like to say that its a 1st pattern Heer pith, with green leather trim and chin strap. The eagle on the front is a KM example and might have been added at any time. It is probably period applied, but it would be hard to be certain and I have never seen one with heer shields and a km eagle, though there are many things I've never seen.
    A very nice pith either way and thanks for showing it.

    my friend who was at the sale and lives there and said these items have been with the VFW for awhile.
