I believe this to be a M-1945 Combat Backpack, and Cargo Attachment, and M-1943 Shovel, & M-1936 Cartridge Belt, and M-1910 Canteen. The Combat Backpack is dated 1952 and has Korean language markings.
The Combat Pack Top is missing the inside rubberized lining. The Cargo Attachment has faded markings and is missing the inside rubberized lining. The M-1943 Folding Shovel is dated 1945. The canvas shovel cover is faded and has wear damage from use.
There are some rips on the shovel cover. The M-1936 Cartridge Belt is Korean War vintage.
It has a ripped raise the dot style snap on one pocket. There is a three pocket section of another cartridge belt added to the back middle of the belt so a soldier can carry more ammo. There is a 1945 canteen, with a 1949 canteen cup, and a 1951 dated canteen cover. The backpack has some M-1944 Suspenders, that have has several straps removed.I show some Black & White reference book photos that have information about these types of items. The reference book is not offered for sale. All that is for sale is the WW2 to Korean War M-1945 Backpack, shovel, belt, canteen, etc. Only the Vintage WW2 to Korean War era items are offered for sale.
They are 60 to 70 years old. They are in Used Condition with wear damage from use. The item was rough weighed in an open box.I have mailed items in the past to: Brazil, United Kingdom, France, Italy, Netherlands, Australia, Canada, Malta, Hungry, Belgium, Taiwan, etc. The local Post Office gives those boxes out to use. They have lost items I have mailed. I'm trying to be 100% up front and honest. I mostly only leave other people feedback after they leave me feedback. Chances are, if you don't leave me any feedback I'll probably not leave you any either. I try to be 100% Honest and show photos and describe items the best I can. Items tend to be old, used, and as is. Feel free to ask me a question.
If I see a size marking on an old Quartermaster Tag, I will try to show a photo of it. If I say that I do not know the size than please do not waste both of our time by asking about the size of an old militaria collectable. I also tend to have items packaged away to try and keep moths from eating them. I only dig them out if they sell and need to be mailed.
Please do not ask me to take more photos, because I probably won't take any more photos of things I have already stored away. For Legal reasons, the items in this listing are stated as "Used Condition".
What is a "Used Condition" item? It is an item that is in "Poor Terrible Condition". They are better condition than "Dug Relic Condition" items. Items are no longer like how they were the day they were first manufactured. Items have been used by someone Decades ago in another Century.Items will have defects and damage from having been used. The older something is, the worse the condition will be. Wool items will have Moth holes. Expect Moth damage to old wool items. Expect clothing to have dirt stains, frayed cuffs and collars. Expect there to be Mildew and Mold damage stains. Expect buttons to be broken or missing.
Expect zippers to be broken and non functional. Expect size tags to be missing or damaged. Expect leather items to be dried out and cracked. Hats will be crushed and bent out of shape.Do not expect clothing to fit you, it is not your size. Expect oxidation and rust on the metal parts. Expect items to be faded from having been exposed to sun light. Expect metal items to have dents, scratches, and paint loss. Expect items to have microscopic fractures when looked at under a microscope. Expect Electronic items to no longer work or be functional. These items are old and things slowly get destroyed by time. Please do not expect something in "New Condition", or "Good Condition". These items are in "Used Condition", and are Relics from another Century.
