Todays Flea Market Finds


Recommended Posts

I'm guessing the stenciling of O-5211 is like the laundry mark on the inside of some WW2 era uniforms. I also found a multicam cap made by Propper which I have a question about. Are they strictly commercial or could military personnel buy these at the PX?

The last thing I found were two CIBs. This is the first time I've found a smaller one that was pin back. They were 6 dollars as the seller didn't bother to look on the back and see the sterling mark on the larger one as he would not have let it go for 3 dollars.

There are some stamping on the inside of the shell.

 

 

looks US judging by the rivets

The Propper hat is a definite commercial item. The little Multicam tag and the blue Commercial Propper tag are a giveaway.

 

I can't read the label but I will bet it say Made in Dominican Republic. While Propper is a military contractor with US plants, virtually all their commercial sale stuff is made by a separate division that sews it all overseas, mostly in DR. That wouldn't be sold by AAFES either, but could be offered by shops off post and bought by Soldiers.
