  1. all i have to say is . let me set the scene you are at a show you see the cover on a helmet you ask the guy can i remove the cover he says no what do you do then? IMO you first look for pac man well if that is good look at the color separation you can not always look at the beach side. if i had a helmet strait from a vet i would not let you take it apart either. i am done with this this is my last post on this i still do not think you proved it was a myth but what ever no one else has said it is a myth so again what ever. it dont mean that you have to stop holding a point of view differen
  2. he is known as grey blanket. go to gunboards and search grey blanket. i personally would only buy from him if i was 100% sure. weather he is the one that tinkers with stuff or that is how he gets it i don't know. he sells guns thousand above retail and there is usually something wrong force match/stock swap things of this nature people have said they tell him and he will say thank you and not fix listing or nothing. then you got the people who love him and swear he is the best thing since sliced bread.
  3. ok maybe i should be more clear here. this hole discussion is not about his stuff until he made it about that. it is about a cover on ebay. the comment i made was not about someone backing up his stuff the comment was about i want others who have posted these links we posted to come and say you are correct southshore 8754 until they do that for all i know he is a guy trying to validate his fake stuff. if you read i said i see color separation in his helmet the pants were harder when i blew the image up i could see so was i calling his stuff fake? if that is how you see it i guess i did no
  4. very cool. how does the liner feel i would imagine it would hurt.
  5. the second link is a open discussion so go argue with them you can.

  7. all 3 of these guys were contributors to the article.
  8. leave me alone you are talking crazy. your stuff has color separation you say it don't get your eyes checked i have shown proof off of this site you have show some helmet and some pants and say there is no separation there is again the argument is not with me but the people who did the article and made it a sticky. apparently you can not see or something so here is who wrote the article. 3 names bother them and tell them they are wrong.STOP BOTHERING ME I DID NOT COMPOSE THE ARTICAL usmc grunt mdk0911 fordmustanggt_350
  9. according to him there is no color separation. i see it and am glad someone else sees it he wants to argue with me that is dumb i did not produce the article others did so it should be his mission to convince them not me. i can only go by what reference's i have at my disposal i have all of the books and no they do not seem to cover fake/original. i also agree items need to be taken as a hole and 100% evaluated. when going through a show or a garage sell i need to be able to identify quick. if the cover is on a shell and they wont let me remove it i look at the camo and look for pac man. K.I.S
  10. rude!!!!!! others on this site i wont say who told me here is the convo minus name ((Yes, it is a reproduction. Also note that the colors touch. Originals have a thin line of color between the blotches. Do you have an original you can compare these to?)) ((this is an original, but it is seriously overpriced:)) https://www.ebay.com/itm/WW2-USMC-Pattern-1942-HBT-Camo-Helmet-Cover-1st-Pattern-Original-RARE-NOS/124450353650?_trkparms=aid%3D1110006%26algo%3DHOMESPLICE.SIM%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D229880%26meid%3D8de32b904ed540f8ad4775d6c2d5e2d0%26pid%3D100005%26rk%3D1%26rkt%3D12%26mehot%3Dpf
  11. if you believe what you are posting i am the wrong person to talk to. until the article is changer or until another member chimes in and confirms what you say. i have to go with what i know
  12. if what you say is true then this should be fixed. i got my info from here. i see color separation on all the photos. what reference material is out there that will tell you the difference? https://www.usmilitariaforum.com/forums/index.php?/topic/178391-usmc-wwii-frogskin-covers-rethinking-the-norm/
  13. i can only comment on what i read and on this site it talks about separation of color. the helmet you posted has separation of color. the pants do not so if i were to see these items in the wild i would take the helmet leave the pants.
  14. this guy is the infamous gray blanket. he sells shady stuff all of the time go to gunboards and search grey blanket. some feel what he does is not wrong others have said they tell him stuff is wrong he will say thank you and that is it. other say it is ok because people should know what they buy. some say people are jellous because he always get premium for his stuff. to answer what is different between the shirt and the cover? the cover has no separation of color.
  15. cool i just wanted a nice ww2 usmc example. it is crazy a guy with your last name is issued a pair of pants and years later different war you get them. wonder if they were related.thank you guys for helping me figure this out.
  16. the pants have the letters ki in them looks like the beginning of the name ki rby/ kirby. not saying it is but it is strange to me how a guy named kirby got the pants of another guy named kirby in the same division after the war? was unis changed after the war? i have read no where that mix matching was not done in fact in grunt gear it goes against that theory in the beginning they used a mix of army and marine corps clothing and other gear so why would older pants if in good shape not be issued until stock is depleted. i hope more people chime in thank you all so much .
  17. sorry do you read it right to left?
  18. ok so what is 422 and is that the same kirby you think?
  19. ok i bought a nice ww2 uniform pants and top the pants are the m41 very light you can see the unis mark. it is a fourth marine division . the four on top is rank i believe the numbers on the inside are 477? ok here is the strange part i will attach a link to where i bought it his pictures will be way better than mine https://www.ima-usa.com/products/original-u-s-wwii-usmc-hbt-herringbone-twill-p44-combat-field-utility-named-set-jacket-and-pants?variant=31894358130757 ok we see the name R.W. KIRBY. i looked on this site for a kirby https://1stbattalion24thmarines.com/the-companies/bio
  20. ok got the final book and it is good . i must say i was surprised by how little there is in a kit not sure why but i thought there would be more. thank you guys very much gerat books.
  21. thank you it is a model i can work off of. looking i have a lot of the gear needed.
  22. i got the book i love them but you guys were right it is not what i am looking for. i guess what i would like is to be able to put a set up together that would represent a d-day solider. still waiting for the windrow book. thank you guys very much.
