USMC is out of my normal collecting scope, but I received this great group on a trade (it might have already been posted before), and I was looking for some help to try and ID what it is. 

This came from a local veteran out of Blackfoot, Idaho.

Thanks so much.

I will confirm but I was told the group is named to Glenn M. Stoddard who originally hailed from Nevada.

Looks like an early or first pattern upper with the D-Rings on the shoulder straps.

Looks like he was with the 10th Marines for most of the war.

Thanks guys for all of the help!

This set definitely shows the wear and use we all like to see. Glad to see a Regiment and Division are pinned down. I'll search a little more to see if he was apart of any key battles.

The Red Squares - still consistent with Shore Party?

Looks like he was a message center chief (MOS 674) with HQ & Service Battery / 10th Marines through Guadalcanal, Tarawa, Saipan, and Tinian. He was back stateside before Okinawa.

Wow!

Thank you so much! This is awesome.

I just got it in on a trade - does any one know what something like this is worth when I sell?

Great group. The pack set is worth around 325. D Rings have been selling for around 250 and the lower is worth around 75. The belt is worth 50-75 and the canteen set is worth around 75. I'd put a premium since they are all to the same combat vet.
