    Default WWII Canadian Headphones (Boxed)

    Hi All,

    Would like to share my recent purchases.

    Here are two boxed CDN headphones in unused condition!

    On the box are labeled "Receivers Headgear, MC, Mk. I". Originally there were 2 sets per box.

    Underneath the box are the C-Broad Arrows ink stamped with different sizes.

    When I saw the headphones, noticed that they are identical to the U.S.construction. The rubber ear pads, and the OD back straps.

    Any comments welcome.

    Regards,
    Taka

    Thank you Wood Pecker.

    It's actually two per box as labeled, and I agree hard to find examples.

    Cheers!

    Hi Taka a very nice addition to your collection I will check on a link on radio equipment tonight after work I do believe this particular variation is shown and posted with a little bit of pertinent information.
    They are near twins to my own example I will as well post them up tonight for comparison.

    Regards Mark

    Please and thank you, Mark.

    I think the headphones were made by the U.S., the rubber pads, webbing, even the webbing suspenders, are identical to U.S. materials.
