  1. Found a Bloomberg for ref. 8 / 1951 / MRT
  2. Also definitely dyed black.
  3. I dont think so. See below the comparison with a 1916 dated holster from RIA. The construction is much different and the thread is a different size...
  4. Just wondered if this was the last year RIA manufactured the M1916 holster?
  5. I was contacted by Mr. James L. Weber's last living daughter a week ago. She had found some correspondence(email) I had with her older sister in 2009. She asked if I would sell this helmet back to her as it was her fathers. After I was able to verify her to actually be his daughter, I told her for the price it would take to ship it to her she could have it no cost. I received today an email with her heart felt thanks at repatriating this helmet to her. It can be passed down in her family now.

  6. I got this recently and was interested in making sure it was a real WW2 holster. It is more "redish" than my RIA version from 1916. The bottom "tab" is also much longer than I was expecting...
  7. Tim, I sold my Mills canteen cover a few months ago. It was not dated and I think the logo was on the left flap. That cover did not have a US on it so I figured it was a civilian marketed one. It did have the steel hook in tube though.
  8. I also have a Mills 1911 dated M1910 wire cutter carrier...and the plyers that go in it...marked US on both sides...
  9. Found this gem on ebay. I had been looking for an early axe carrier for a while.
  10. I thought WW2 production had Remington Rand producing the most with Ithica and Cold in the middle and US&S being the least...(Singer excluded of course).
  11. I see 8 pockets on this belt. One in front of the chap and one after the Right most one. You can see the rivet on the right and surmise the one ahead of the chap.
  12. A true first pattern has no date and the handle is all coated steel. These are not so easy to find.
  13. HI, This was brought back from a returning vet in 1946. He was in the 96 inf div in a unit I am told was called the "Dead Eyes" Has anyone an idea what this is? Combat knife or just souvenir? thanks, Pep
  14. Thank you both for the fast answers.
