The flea market gods smiled at me today. Found this unopened original parachutist first aid kit just sitting there on a table waiting for me to walk up and buy it for $10!

...unopened...

Hi,

 

Congrats of course but also one small question: Unopened? With morphine syrette? Is it legal in the USA to trade morphine on the flea markets?

 

I know I know, curiosity killed the cat, but it is interesting. In EU it would be impossible.

 

Best regards

 

Greg

Gregory... possible - impossible - in Poland I had two sets: Hot and Wet environment Surivival kits and Individual survival kits from Vietnam Era. All sets included "Stay awake AMPHETAMINA pills" I think the police dont care about it...

The CONTENTS of one of those kits just sold on ebay for $356 - again that's without the case!

Fantastic find there Robin!

 

Concerning the illegal substance that might be included in these packs, I've seen these syrettes being sold in their untouched condition (full), same thing for atropine/bella donna, even opium. I see this each year at the biggest militaria show in Belgium, where police is always present. I guess they just don't really care...
