1943 AF&H Co. Entrenching Tool


Recommended Posts

The Estate Sale folks were kind to me today; I found an American Fork & Hoe Company ET dated 1943. It is in a 1945 dated M1943 cover. Thanks for looking.

I try to update it by adding several new items each month, so keep checking back.

As Craig says, it's a very scarce date and as a bonus has a nicely stamped date (as opposed to many more poorly stamped shovels).

That 1943 dated shovel is a great find! You could consider to put it in a 1943 dated 1st pattern (fixed hook) cover, those have become easier to find the last few years.
