  3. Hello, Having checked the internet I have not been unable to find a production/date-plate like this one. It has no date, no serial number. Might this be an early model? Or a later refurbished one. What I understand is that the later refurbished ones carry the code LSD (Lexington Signal Depot), followed by a number. Any information wil be appreciated. The handy-talkie is not in my possession, yet. For me, it is important to know if this one is a genuine ww2 piece. Thanks for your time and effort.
  4. Goodday,, I have recently found a Schlueter M1 overhere in Holland. I was told that the helmet has been worn by a Dutch officer during the Korean War. After some research it seems that the shell and liner are quite early WW2. The shell has heatstamp 275A (S). It has been repainted. In a few spots one can still see the original ww2 olivedrab green . Also parts of the corking can still be seen. The Westinghouse liner's headband and nape are from oct.. "43 ( or a little later) The A-washers seem to be from around the same date. The leather chinstrap looks very old, however l

  6. Hello, could anyone tell me if this helmet is a original WW2 US issued tanker helmet or that it might be a clone from a later date. no makersmark, only the stamp 55-53. After some read8 g I know the US makers and that the “X” crossbanen over the earpieces are post-war However these types of helmets are a unknown to me., but I already have read that there are many “questionable” items on the market. Thanks for looking.
  7. Hello, I found this pot in a Dutch thriftshop. It has been "trough the wars", so to speak. The shape looks very odd. Like it has been cut down, re-shaped? Corking looks okay, in some areas. The pot feel heavy and is in fair condition, aside from the many dents. SB, with the seam apparently on the back. However, I am not 100% sure as to what is the front and what is the back. One chinstrap reamining with rivet. What do you think? US, European, post-war? Or just a "casualty of War"? Hope to hear from you.Regards from Holland
  8. Thanks Andrew and Reforger. After some more digging ( thanks to your tips) I have found it. It is indeed French, 1945 enlisted model SSI of the French Army SEA ( Service des Essence des Armees…..fuel service of the army) If you might be interested: www.symboles-et-traditions.fr Again, thanks for the help.
  9. Thanks for the thought. If it is indeed French, any ideas on the army, unit etc.?
  10. I have not been able to id this patch/insignia. it measures 5.5 x 7.5 cm. (2.1 x 2.9 inch) On red felt, with two crossed, flaming torches. The patch is in good condition. I have bought in Salt Lake City together with other US patches. And that is why I still think it is US, but might it be foreign? All information will be appreciated. Thanks for looking.
