It's a pretty nice WW1 gas mask set with something strange about it, there's a black period handle attached to the connection point. Has anyone come across this before or seen it? Was in a footlocker for decades before being sold off this morning. Thoughts?
  8. This is one of two sets that came from a grouping to a Rockwell/NASA research pilot. I have never personally seen these before, especially the bullion example, but thought they were very cool. The felt patch appears to be the one affixed to slight suits. Just wanted to share it with the group.
