Memorial Day Flea Marketing Part 1 Finds


Recommended Posts

Went out to the local Flea Market today and will be heading out again Monday to look for more items to add to the collection.

Acquired some photographs, a 1945 Canteen with a strap(Cavalry?), and some miscellaneous insignias aswell as a USN Dogtag.

 

Enjoy

Haha, it's actually my first one and I planned on asking you on your opinion about it. I don't know much about USN/USMC Tags. What do I have?

Nice finds with the added significance of finding them while we celebrate Memorial Day.

 

Thanks. It's a privilege to honor the fallen in some way on Memorial Day and Memorial Day weekend even if it may be just collecting.
