    Default US leggings

    Hey guys,have just received a very rough box of gear from the states(sigh)and included in this seemingly unfortunate deal was a pair of leggings size 4,I have compared these with my size 3R leggings and they seem to be a bit smaller,I'm unsure exactly of the labelling system but my main concern is the markings inside the leggings are not required WW2 QM markings,there is no date and I was wondering if anyone can help me glean a period from these...any help would be fantastic! Thanks Sean

    Thats a bit odd.You normally see the DSA coding on items from the 50's- 60's.It stands for Defense Supply Agency.These leggings are probably for parade usage.

    These are the USMC P1940 pattern leggings. These are post 1950 production examples.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Oh my goodness...got seriously done over with the lot of gear I got here..$160 USD for a 43 field jacket covered in paint,suspenders that have been restitched so many times and so poorly I think a drunk man with a bent needle is responsible,a good condition GP strap(only good piece) and a pair of post war leggings...everything described as good used condition..should have known at the prices but I do deal with Hayes Otupolik alot and he is very reasonably priced generally...sigh..contacted seller mantheline.com..very apologetic and stated name your store credit price and I'll agree,we agreed upon a 2 piece combat pack set,he seemed very happy and even said no charge for shipping..was so happy..until contacted him yesterday as nothing had arrived...stated only willing to give me $125 store credit and have to pay shipping now($55)..amazing how people can change their minds..I couldn't live with myself knowing I'm selling crap.

    We all get burned on occasion, it's just part of the game I suppose. Still mad at young me for throwing all that money at a faked SS arm band. Gotta make a mistake to learn I suppose.
