  1. I'm pretty sure this is not a regulation mounted canteen cover. It's appears to be a regular dismounted cover with the rear hanger removed and loops added. Basically an everyday cover that's been modified (almost certainly postwar) to act like a mounted cover.
  2. Do you have anything showing the UNIS breakdown for the Sixth?
  3. So if he was in 4th Div, it looks like the 5 was his rank. Captain I think.
  4. Thanks for the response. Is that 4th Marine Division? Might this be 5th? I don't see a lot of detail about these markings available.
  5. I have this carrier and have no idea abut the markings. There is a '5' on the front and '752' on the bottom, along with the name R W Wilson Any help is appreciated.
  6. I don't have it with me but will try to find out. Is it a percussion pistol?
  7. No story that I know of. If I can find out what it is, maybe he can figure out how his father came across it.
  8. My 80-year old father-in-law just showed this to me, said it belonged to his father. I don't know much about these things and hoped someone could help me identify it. Thanks!
  9. There is little value as far as collectibility. Gibraltar is a (relatively) rare manufacturer, if I remember correctly, so there is a bit in its favor. Otherwise, assume it isn't worth much but has a great deal of value for the sentiment. And if he left children behind, keep them in mind in the years to come.
  10. What is F.B.T.? Thanks!
  11. I know nothing about uniforms but believe these (there are two) to be USMC based on the name. Are these Army or USMC, WWII or Korea? And any help ID'ing the name would be really appreciated!
  12. Thanks for that information, I hadn't seen that company mentioned before. As for the hangers, the previous owner had noted that it was from an artillery unit. I don't know how that association was made, or if it's accurate, but do wonder what was the benefit of the longer hangers. And if it was made as a one-off or at the unit level.
