max0073 collection

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

thought I would share with you some of my collection. Unfortunately I have no room to display it for the moment (prices are crazy in Paris-center) but will certainly move in Fall and I hope I will be able to display more and move the rest of my collection which is located in a different place from my appartment (my GF is very easy to live but I don't want to test her limits ;) )

 

I hope you will enjoy. I have tried to take only one view of each item.

 

1/ some random equipment :

There are other things but there are the most interesting in my opinion.

 

Sorry that this is not a proper display but once I'll have a more convenient place I will update this topic.

 

Thank you for your interest. Please leave any thought or concern, especially on helmets (the 2nd ID liner and some others I don't know the meaning of their marking)

You've amassed a very eclectic collection...well done! Great selection of marked M1s!

Hello,

 

thank you for your comments. I have tried to gather only "quality" items in the past times but there are still areas to explore... That's really what I like in the navy, you have tons of items and not everything are in the books !

 

In the meantime, I am still looking for USN items and espacially corspman + denim shawl collar
