Few Flea Market Finds

Recommended Posts

I picked up this yard long but the image is not a photograph but a 1944 copyrighted print of some kind. Does anyone know if this is WW2 despite not being a photograph but sort of an elongated poster?

Forgot a couple of other things I found last Friday at the flea market. The MP brassard for the 8th Field Army Support Command came with two extra patches. The sewn on one is cut edge while the other two are early merrowed edged patches. There is stitching on the rear of where the patch is sewn showing another patch possibly 8th Army SSI that had been sewn on first with some sort of tab.

I also found a currently produced Kabar knife marked KA-BAR OLEAN N.Y. There is a heavy black paint like coating that is flaking off but for 15 dollars I couldn't walk away. I also found this muzzle bayonet only marked US.

They're all neat but I'm a sucker for the Ka-Bar and socket bayonet. It's always fun trying to figure out what the socket bayonets fit.
