1st Div. front seam swivel bail from the same R.I. show. Can anyone ID the markings on the sides of this pot? Someone previously  tried (rather harshly I might add), to remove a layer or two of  overpaint. Looks like the blue and white unit may be 3rd Div. over another unit? Thoughts????

The side insignia are for the 18th infantry regiment. This style of markings are often seen during the 1st Division's occupation of Germany.

Hey Overlord,

 

Yep that was my original post and from my table today.  I happened to be outside taking a phone call when you came by my table.  That was a buddy of mine that was watching the table for me while I was out.  Sorry I missed you.  As in my original post I also believe the side decals are for the 18th.  The day it was saved it was probably 10-15 minutes away from total obliteration.  Glad it went to someone who'll appreciate it.

Just a follow up here.......my response yesterday was in haste with a poor choice of words. Disappointed would have been closer than PO'd. Even that would have been wrong. After seeing the initial replies  to my post, my initial thought was "here we go again, another fake helmet". Well, it was just knee jerk. Sorry Paul.............................
