Bandoleer Safety Pins


Recommended Posts

They are blackened brass in that they have a slight bit of greenish verdigris on one and they are not magnetic. They are 2 inches long. I found 11 of these in a small baggy at an antique store today and thought I'd risk it for $2.00 :lol:

None of the bandoleers I have still have the safety pin so I thought this might be a good addition.

Thanks!

Kim

Yes, that is the same type we used from the 1980s to present. probably older (Vietnam era) as well

Hi Kim,

I just looked at box of carbine bandoleers that I have. I have maybe 150 dating as late as 1952 (not sure how early I have) but maybe half still have the safety pins. They are about two inches inches in length, black (semi-gloss) and the bottom loops have paint in them (maybe they were dipped?). I can post pics tomorrow if you would like.

Of all the bandoleers (140) only 13 still have the safety pins. The dark ones in the pile mix are without the pins

and dated 1956. They are the only ones that are dated. I do have pics in the link below of the pins, they appear to be brass

and mixed, the flat and shiny pins are within each lot.

Hope this helps.

Terry
