Yardsale Finds and Walk Ins


Recommended Posts

I stopped at a few yardsales this morning on the way to the shop. I got a few items but alas I was a day late, the guy having the sale said he sold a lot the day before. I picked up a repainted Civil Defense helmet, a web set that has two M67 20rd mag pouches on it, three DI's, a sharpshooter badge with rifle bar both sterling marked, a Korean War era Engineers collar brass, an AAM ribbon and two tabs Ranger and Airborne. A few hours after I opened I had a guy walk in with a footlocker full of goodies and I managed to get a few things from there also. A pair of named double buckle boots, a WW1 studio photo, a photo of a US Army transport ship with news article and a couple of foreign things including a complete 3rd Reich gas mask and a 1939 dated Polish gas mask with a paper carrier.

 

Could anyone ID the two DI's that are red and silver with the lion?

Here is the web set. Only one of the mag pouches is marked and it is contract dated 1968.

Here are the double buckle boots. They are named to a Jack F. Kountz from Columbia, Pennsylvania.

Hi! I saw that you have a pair of double buckle boots there. I'm on the hunt for a pair. I was wondering if you'd be willing to sell them. If you would sell them how's the quality of the leather. Are they still wearable? Could they be worn to a reenactment? These would be my first pair of actual WWII boots. I could really use them. Think about it and reply. Thank you!

This post is two years old. I've long since sold them. Sorry, Happy Hunting.
