Looked at couple of 45 mags in a WWI period pouch today, one is stamped S which I know is a good WWII maker, but the other marked one has a G which is unfamiliar to me. Anyone know if this is a WWII period maker, both mags and pouch in very good to excellent condition. Thanks in advance George
1911 G marked mag

Should have a seam up the back. General Shaver was a division of Remington Rand and those pistols shipped with a General Shaver magazine.

Thank you both, I know the Scovill's bring a premium price how about the Gen. Shavers? These are in a pouch on belt with couple other pouches nothing matches as to time period except the 3 mag pouches for 1911. Guy is stuck around hundred which seems rich to my blood.

In terms of value, so much of that hinges upon condition, so it's really hard to say without seeing them. As a range, I would put a value on the Scovill of $25-$35. The General Shaver about $10-$15 more.
All just my humble opinion.

Thank you, I'll go back and look them over later today if I get the chance and check the bottoms of the mags for additional markings..
