I just got these for $10. Mint unissued, made in the mustard tan canvas of early WW2 Marine gear. Inkstamped "DQP 1942-1943" indicating mfg by the USMC Supply Depot in Phila PA and have a white Depot label dated Jan 1942. Made in the pre/early war pattern with bright brass hardware.

Very nice - from ebay?

 

Yeah....it was one of those listings you see at the bottom of the page when you do an ebay search. It was a "buy it now" only listing and the seller doesn't know squat about militaria....the kind I love to deal with.

When I was a kid, late fifties, early sixties you could find these by the bundle at the local Army Navy stores.  They cost a dollar, and I remember buying one.  They had them forever since almost nobody but a weird kid like me bought them.
