    Default My little, original collection of U.S items!

    A couple of photos of my little collection. Everything is original, it's not much, but I'm only 15, and this is at least a start! Opinions and answers are all welcome!

    A list of the items, for anyone interested:

    M1936 "musette" field bag - Burlington Mills, Inc. 1941
    M1 helmet liner - Westinghouse. Date: unknown, but WW2
    M1 helmet liner, inside shown - Seamans Paper Company
    1 Pair of leggins - Hillsdale MFG. Co. April 9, 1941
    M1910 Canteen cover - Shane MFG. Co. 1942
    Canteen cup, M1910 - U.S, A.G.M.Co 1943
    Canteen, stainless steel - U.S, S.M.Co 1943
    Carbine pouch - 1945, Manufacturers name is too faint
    M1942 First aid pouch+First aid tin - VICTORY 1943
    M1943 E-tool cover - Unknownk, possibly post war
    Case, cleaning rod, M1 - unknown
    Bolo knife cover - Brauner Bros. 1918
    M1905E1 bayonet - S.A 1914
    M1 bayonet scabbard - unknown
    3 garrison caps (medical, infantry, dress) - unknown
    Ribbon bar - WW2 service
    M1 helmet shell - Front seam. Made by Schlueter, OD.7 chinstraps, swivel bale
    M1943 jacket - Unknown, but early production

    The Seamans paper company liner is marked (S) 1 (below the "S") what does that mean?

    Enjoy

    Thank you for the nice comments! Yes the M43 jacket is in very good condition, unfortunately there is no label on it, so I can't tell the date of it.

    I will post more pictures on here, when I get more items... This collecting is really a death trap i shouldn't have jumped into haha!
