M1923 Pouch and Magazine’s

Recommended Posts

I recently acquired this pouch and the magazine’s came with it. I can’t make out any of the wording on the pouch, but I believe it’s WWI vintage.

 

magazines have no discernible markings. one was advertised as military issue but I see nothing to support that.

 

any feedback would be great. I’ll let the pictures do the talking.

It is WW1. To my trained eye, I am able to see that it is very faintly marked L.C.C. & CO. (L.C. CHASE & Co).  Could be 1918

Thank you. Your Eye's are better than mine as even magnified with my camera I can't really make it out.

My pleasure to help. I guess my eyes are no better than yours. It's just that after collecting these pouches for so long, I have become familiar with the fonts of their manufacturers and from there becomes a catalyst for deciphering the very faint markings...then as you stare at them longer, they becomes clearer. Your pouch is a WW1 pouch with designation M-1918. I love these pouches. Cheers from the Philippines!

Look down on the toe of the magazines to see if there are any letters stamped there. That would indicate a military issue mag.

Here are the Mag pouches. Buy some reference books, save lots of $$$$ and time.

Both USGI. 

Thank you for the info. I apologize for my ignorance on the topic but is there any way to put a rough date on them?

As they are full blue and not two tone, they are WWII magazines. 

Thank you!
