  1. Such interesting recipient engraving! I am constantly on the search for such examples! Where have you purchased it, any insight you could provide regarding where such items can be found?! Let me know man:) Pleasure, Alexander
  2. Hello:) Does anybody have a P1 or and P2 canteen cover that they would be willing to put up for sale? Also will purchase any P-3's if you've got em!! Let me know guys! Alexander
  3. Hello, I was just wondering if M1945 packs were used in WW2? I assumed they would have been used very late in the war, but I am not really sure. If anybody could let me know, it would be much apreciated! Thanks, Daniel
  4. Sometimes manufactors were in a hurry to get shells to the troops so they disregarded it and didn't apply a heat stamp.
  5. That is a very nice cover you have there! The seller said he would send me pics of the hook and inside, so I'll post those pretty soon! Thanks, Daniel
  6. Hi, I was wondering if this cover might possibly be a repro because the lift-a-dots look pretty new as well as the hook. I know that it has the correct marines M1910 hook pushed inward but my main concern is if it might be a very good repro or its just in really good condition. Something that also makes this auction a little bit fishy is that the seller states that the estimated delivery date is September 11th-September 15? http://www.ebay.com/itm/281145731314?ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1423.l2649 Daniel
  7. I've been there about 100 times and I'm hoping to go back before they close, they close the museum on August 14th. Hopefully somebody buys the museum and keeps it running! Daniel
  8. Sometimes in the early 80's they would salvage WW2 shells replace the chinstraps with the Vietnam style ones and stamp like for example "82" under the front rim, though they would leave the remaining cork texture. As sabrejet has stated they did paint the shells in the early 80's an apple green color. I have an example of a reissued WW2 helmet shell that was used in the 80's that has a "cobra green" shade to it as well as a reissued stamp of 82 under the rim. Though they did produce 80's shells that were the exact same as the WW2 style but without corking, stamps on the rear rim with the maker
  9. Those are definantly a good set of genuine P41's with trousers! Daniel
  10. Cardboard is acidic and harmful to collectibles.
  11. I would highly suggest using acid free tissue, it fills up space and it doesn't effect items like cardboard, newspaper, and old clothing does. Hope this helped, Daniel
  12. Looks to be a misprint of an EGA, any blue anchor markings? Daniel
