A good day hunting 3 birds and a black widow

Recommended Posts

Last day off before I start my work week so I hit some haunts and beat the brush to see what was out there.

 

Hit a local antique mall and found a vendor closing it's stall. HUGE Discounts! Picked up a double patched (7th ID left and 3rd ID right) Korean War Ike, trousers and red piped overseas cap. Domed collar brass - US and INF. Two mid 1950's TM's and what was listed as a Korean War commie chest rig ammo pouches (I know it isn't US, but it was gotten in the group).

 

Dry hole, dry hole (passed on a cheap set of 1977 Army tans - shirt w/PFC's and pants, then WHAM I bagged 3 birds! a 325th INF pocket patch, a Vietnamese in-country 1st Aviation Brigade "Golden Hawks" pocket hanger and an older EGA (to be id'd).

 

As Ice Cube says, It was a very good day, and I didn't have to use my AK!

Nice finds! From the small photo you posted, it looks like a 1920'/30's droop wing EGA. A better (and closer) photo would help.

 

The Ike set is a good find. Two good Korean war combat units.

I posted additional and better pics of the EGA in the EGA reference section of the forum.
