  1. It was made to hold a gasmask, but by 1944 I think the germans realized gasmasks were useless. The GI's could carry their camp stoves in these when they got their hands on them.
  2. It was listed in Men's Vintage Clothing > 1947-64 (Post WWII-Early 60s) > Coats, Jackets, Sweaters Description: "My father bought this some time after WWII. Its a faded green ribbed material with fake brown fur collar. Has a "crown" zipper in excellent shape. The cuffing is worn but looks repairable. Has a printed star with wings in a circle on left shoulder. Looks like a size 36. Email me for more pics or questions. This item is in Tucson. For some reason I can't get the listing location changed. I will ship fastest way possible after transaction. Insurance is included" Obscure catergory listings often have the best treasures... Do a search through vintage clothing, look up "signal corp" in the old electronics catergory, or a general "military" search in antiques... You'll find some good stuff once and a while. I'll post more photos when I get the jacket, from the one photo its probably hard to tell if its repro or not.
  3. Complete jacket, scrapbook, souveniers, ike letter!!! Beautiful. These are the superb groupings that get destroyed on ebay!
  4. WOW, that pile of German reproduced crap, looked like my big box of "mistakes" when I gave up collecting WWII German stuff. Way too much money wasted on that stuff... The dagger handles look like they are made by Mattel.
  5. The seller doesn't want to remove the net because he wants to leave everything "as found"... Well that is fine, and I completley agree with that to a limited extent... I don't treat my leather items, I never wash or soak anything... BUT not removing a helmet net... come on... That net is covering up something he doesn't want bidders to see... It's a damn shame. A real nice 9th helmet sold on ebay not too long ago. Someday there will be another, just steer clear of this one boys.
  6. I'm very impressed!!!!!!!!!!! Anyone else agree, that you just don't see enough fine collections of post civil war through WWI US militaria like this one?
  7. I scored this off ebay just a few minutes ago. I found it at the last minute. I don't own any flight jackets and the few I have seen were A-2s. It looks good in comparison to my references. Zipper is marked CROWN and it has insignia on the sleeve. Did I do well? Usually I post my new acquistions in a constantly updated thread, but I wanted to start a new one for this....
  8. Seller response to my inquiry about the provenance: "I GOT IT FROM THE VETERAN DIRECTLY AND IT IS 100% ORIGINAL. IF YOU ARE NOT COMFORTABLE WITH IT THEN PLEASE DO NOT BID, I WON'T BE OFFENDED AND IT WOULD BE YOUR LOSS. THE LINER CAME WITH THE HELMET FROM THE VETERAN AND THIS IS THE WAY I GOT IT AND THE NAME WILL NOT BE GIVEN OUT... PERIOD - flightjkt
  9. "Folks, it doesn't get any better than this." - Seller http://cgi.ebay.com/ORIGINAL-PARATROOPER-M...emZ310021108415 Seller refuses to share serial number except to the highest bidder... I guess he is still trying to dig one up to add to the liner before its sold.... Won't show the whole liner, or the maker of the liner,
  10. Just connect a tube to the hole, now you'll never have to empty out your new piss pot.
  11. I REALLY hope someone didnt take an original M2 and prime and paint it before shooting holes in it....................
  12. Brig, Speaking of odern day AWOL... There was an LT who failed ranger school, never checked back into the Lieutenant Transition Office (2-11 HHC the most disorgaized HHC unit on fort benning)... Went home, job a civilian job, grew a beard and no one figured out he was missing for 13 months. All the while he was drawing a government paycheck. I thought I'd share.
  13. I always stop by the sick bay for old med corps items. Get blankets and such all the time from them. Old med corp dishware, blankets, etc. I was acting AG for all of IOBC and lugged around a tripod from WWII.
  14. They existed, early too.... Page 170 - Doughboy to GI" Photo showing an LT in Italy - April 1944 with the pack...
