  1. I have several M-1943 e-tools but am still missing a nice T-handle shovel. What to think about this one? Looks like a nice WW1 shovel painted in olive drab as used in WW2.
  2. Thanks! Already had the suspicion it was a repro. Oh well.
  3. Found this bucket at a local dumpstore. It only has an US marking. Don't know what to make up of it; real or a reproduction? Anyone who has more knowledge of these buckets?
  4. No markings on the inside either. Probably faded away.
  5. Hello all, This bag was found in a local dumpstore. I already know its a bag for bazooka rockets. Unfortunatly its missing the internal dividers. It lacks stamps of productiondate and manufacturer. I assume that this is a ww2 period bag? Anyone who knows when production stopped?
  6. My mistake. Do you have it in OD 3 or 7?
  7. Hello all, I went to a local dumpstore yesterday and picked up this bag. I believe this to be a ww2 bag, carrying, rocket, m6. Unfortunatly, it bares no markings of the manufacturer and/or date. Probably a late war example because of the dark od color and the two snap system? Were these bags still manufactured after the war or did it stop because of the new m20 bazooka? Thanks in advance.

  8. Seeing the first photo, he served as an infantryman prior to his artillery allocation?
  9. Thank you very much ken88. Clears up alot!
  10. I still haven't figured out when a liner chinstrap is considered to be a WW2 chinstrap. I've consulted several topics about it and read things concerning Dot/United Carr marked rivets, brass vs steel buckles and the presence of an anchor under the flip tab of the buckle, green vs black painted etc. Still a lot of discussion/haziness on some points. So my question: when is a liner chinstrap to be considered as a WW2 chinstrap? Thank you in advance.
  11. Because of some money shortage, I'm thinking about selling some of my collection, including this bayonet, to fund college. Can someone give me a fair price for which I can sell the bayo If I decide to sell it? Thank you in advance. Pictures:

    M1 bayonet

    Sorry for the late response (for a while I wasn't able to reach the website); yes, it's still in my collection.

    M1 bayonet

    Thank you for the replies and the pics! I'd already noticed that some scabbards had notches and some not, but never linked it to cut down M3 scabbards. Thanks again

    M1 bayonet

    Excuse me for responding so late. I thought I'd already answered here. Thank you all for the replies. I was able to buy this bayonet an add it to my collection. I still have one question: how can I see if the scabbard has been a reused M3 scabbard? I thought I had read something about some sort of stamping? Thanks again! :smokin:
  15. What do you think of this bayonet? Looks like a good one to me? Anyone who would like to give his opinion about this blade? Thanks in advance! Rutger
  16. What about the temperature in the room/house?
  17. It's named to a soldier who's listed as a WWII-veteran. Maybe the medal was awarded later on?
  18. I posted a topic of a BS a while ago. Now I was wondering what period the engraving would be? Link: http://www.usmilitariaforum.com/forums/ind...showtopic=69052
