picked this up at the brimfield flea market for $15, thought it was a pretty good price. But i cant find any dates, the only markings are the FCDA and padbloc co stamp on the bottom, and the padbloc stamps on the metal, I think its a vietnam era, but im not sure, can anyone confirm/ deny this?

What would be a good price for one of these and what era are they from? Were they ever used in the field?

Anything less than $50 for a litter is a pretty good... Being this is civil defense it would have never been used in the field... Litters don't really get used much in the field at least in the modern army, but even back then the use would have been limited to a point at the casualty collection point to remove the wounded from there...

Thanks for the input and info.

 

What was the majority use of Civil Defense stretchers IF used at all? Never came across one before and would just like to get some info on one.

A civil defense litter would have been used in bomb shelters or any other shelter or ambulance used by the Office of Civil Defense. The Office of Civil Defense was established in 1941 by FDR and existed until 1979. It was the predecessor of FEMA.
