    Thank you for the reply. The seller insists it's real based on this which he found on google.

    These seem to be popping up on blade/ militaria forums & groups in the Philippines. They are more often than not, for sale. I'm sure these are fake. Too many things wrong. Where are these being made?
  4. Aside from what has already been posted details on this are rather scarce. Some groups have expressed interest in recovering it for static display but it appears funds are a problem. I could be wrong but I believe this was found in 2019. I don't think it has been cut up. Tanks are found every so often in the Philippines. Some time ago I posted about the 6 M10 tank destroyers underwater in La Union, which ended up becoming a dive site.
  5. A junked US WW2 Stuart tank in the water off a dock in Manila, Philippines surrounded by junk. Another one was recovered recently in Cebu.
  6. Nice one! Have those same DUI's which I found in a bunker on Corregidor Island. The ones I found were screwback though.
  7. #3 looks like a Philippine Constabulary patch
  8. I could be wrong but it looks very similar to a scuba compass. This would normally have a rubber boot with a cut-out that would allow the user to view the side reading function.
  9. Was going through some of my M56 gear and found a ammo pouch dated 1959. Would pouches with 59' dates be considered common? It's in very good condition, looks like it was never used.
  10. Yes, I tried as well and it's the German M43 that pops up.
  11. Thank you for the reply, appreciate it.
  12. This M43, not the one with the pile liner.
  13. Just a question regarding the M43 field cap. Were these used in WW2? Some people say that they weren't, that they were first used in Korea. Doesn't the lead character in "Fury" wear a M43 field cap? Is this correct? Are there any pics of the M43 field cap in use during WW2?
  14. Here's one I picked up a few years ago...
