very nice collection you are doing well it is good to hear that there are younger collectors out there, i like the cut down M1 bayo 10" bayonet, i have just sold a 16" blade version.
Thats a lovely M1 helmet you've got!
Looking for WWII U.S. dog tags
That is a very nice collection lad.
I really like your bayo I would like to find an SA someday. Nice collection -Ben
Hello, I have been collecting some stuff over the past couple of months, and I now feel that I have a good representable webgear set for an infantryman around 1944-45. Some of the stuff I have already shown before, and it was on a display torso, so I hope that you can still see it well enough. (pictures coming soon)
New stuff is:
M1928 haversack - LUB PROD Co. 1943
Shoulder pads - Kroehler MFG. Co. 1945
Mess tin - U.S. M.A C.O 1945
M1923 cartridge belt - ** SHOE CO 1942 (Can't make out part of it, so if you know a manufactere that is something like that, please leave a comment. Thanks)
M1936 Field bag, shoulder strap (GP strap) - U.S Kadin 1942
Great stuff.Keep it up mate!
