    Default WWII USN FIXED LOOP SALTY OLD DOG w HAWLEY 3RD PATTERN

    Hi Guys

    Here’s a crusty old coot I picked up. I just liked the look of it and I feel like I see less and less of these USN Fixed Loops available so I try to snap them up at auctions / estate sales / etc. Also this one has its original OD3 straps Intact which is nice. Many old Navies seem to have lost / ripped one. I paired it with a salty old original Hawley as well found on eBay (my guess defintely used by kids goofing around in the 50/60s or something. Assorted holes punched through side/ writing / etc). It’s not in great shape. I made an offer. He accepted. Wasn't my best deal but wasn’t my worst. Some markings stenciled on the liner appear they could be original though. Says “Sabrina” (?) on front “Watch” on back. “St Paul” on side. Unfortunately No serial number for me to research unfortunately. All in All I think it has a great look despite condition.


    The light blue steel pot has “4” painted in black and faded on front. The lot number is rusted out and unreadable. Has early raised Brass Buckle and J Hook.

    I always wanted a early Navy / Hawley set and thought that these would go great together... and they do Little did I know I would find a real matching set a few days later (To be posted).

    Pardon the Macro shots ...still getting used to the lens.

    Thanks for looking!

    Congratulations on scoring a nice USN lid and pairing it with a Hawley liner. Don't see many Hawleys this side of the pond.

    Nice pairing. I do not see many Hawleys this side of the pond either. A sad truth is I have not ever had one in hand.

    It does have "St Paul" stenciled on the side as well. Possible Minny reference John. Or maybe his name is Paul Sabrina perhaps. I will say they are extremely fragile ... cant believe guys went to war in them and that there are minty examples even available. This one will have to be stowed carefully.

    Thanks guys!

    This shell has been around. Certainly no shelf queen and war time used. Most probably on a tug pulling a target barge near Staten Island!
    "Please", Thank You" and proper manners appreciated

    My greatest fear is that one day I will die and my wife will sell my guns for what I told her I paid for them

    Sir I don’t know who you are. I see you only have a couple of posts here. But please don’t disrespect historical items like that

    Jokes aside. This condition is what I see a lot of Navies in. Painted multiple times. Dings. Rust. Etc. As opposed to “poor storage”. I think this one saw some heavy on the (barge) boat deck
