Hi,

 

I found these two operators manuals at an antique store recently.  Both are brand new, still sealed in plastic.

 

Were these put in small binders of some sort when used, or were zip ties used to keep them together?  Are these rare?  Should I keep them sealed?

 

Here is the first one, for the M60A3 tank.

And here is the second one, for the M901 TOW vehicle.

 

Thanks for looking.

Cool find.  I wouldn't say they are rare, maybe in shops not common but plenty to find online.   The vehicle -10s can fit inside of the standard green pubs/equipment log binders.   If you plan on keeping them, open them up and do a little light reading!  If you plan on re selling them, maybe leave em sealed so nothing gets lost.  Those actually could be from some time in the 80s being they were printed with the changes included as indicated on the front.
