These seabags are awesome!

Considering the character they have, I'm surprised how low some have sold on e-bay!

Does anyone have any tips for locating them on e-bay? Do they typically get listed as sea bags?

Thanks to everyone who shared their bags!

Could anyone give me an idea of the price I should expect to pay on these sea bags?

I have seen a couple nice ones for sale recently - but I'm not really sure what the nice ones typically sell for?

Don't hate me because I'm beautiful! OK, some nice bags there but this one is a real winner. I found this at a local auction a few years ago. I paid about $125.00 for it (got into a bidding war with one other guy). Enjoy.

Pinup obviously inspired by The Outlaw with Jane Russel.

The bottom. Note what looks like an M.P. armband.

Another bag but not so fancy. Stencil appears to be square which would make it a 2nd MarDiv item.

The bottom and reverse side.

Here's a USMC Seabag I picked up at the Tulsa Gunshow this past weekend. While not as colorful as the later China-painted bags I really like the historical aspects of this one. This pre-WWII Marine was a member of E/2/6 who served with the Marine Brigade in Panama and in Iceland in 1941. Enjoy....Semper Fi......Bobgee
