I have been away on vacation for the past few days in North Carolina. I always find good stuff when I go home. My finds over the weekend included a nice Navy jumper, a boxed and dated National Defense medal, a 1918 2nd assistant BAR cartridge belt, a named 1942 canteen and cover in great condition, and a rather large book that details every WWII veteran from the county where my family is from. I only spent $35. Gotta love flea markets.
Here is the belt and canteen. The cover seems to have a maker or something stitched or stamped into it. Am I crazy or is it actually a maker's mark?
