  1. Ok, thank you. Wish he would have told me that before he bought them.
  2. I recently sold these trousers thinking they were original, but have been informed by the buyer that they are not. Please take a look and confirm one way or the other so I can proceed with the buyer to resolve this issue. Attached below are the pictures I sent the buyer before he made the purchase. Thank you, Chuck
  3. Nice patch! One of my favorite designs...
  4. Perfect! It is a McCord. Thank you both for that information it is much appreciated. Chuck
  5. You're spot on Kevin. I think we have discussed these fakes many years ago. They seem to be sporadically popping up in a few places lately. Buyer Beware! S/F, Chuck
  6. I'm looking at a M1 FS SB steel pot with a heat stamp number of 857F. Can anyone determine the approximate production dates of this shell based on this heat stamp? I can find no such information anywhere doing online searches. Any info would be greatly appreciated. Thank you, Chuck

  11. How much is the seller asking for this cap? IMO, the value is under $5.00. Chuck
  12. Hello Fernando, I believe it's a modern USMC Officer's Service cover. I cannot specify time period, nor do I have any information on the maker. Hopefully, a member with this knowledge will chime in. Chuck
  13. The answer to your question is in Tim's Book. Here is an excerpt from his book that should answer your question. Happy EGA hunting. Chuck
