There is a Korean War era 1950 dated Combat Backpack top, it has the side and top tent straps cut off. The shovel handle loop strap is also cut off. One of the normal shoulder mount straps is cut off. The rubberized lining for the backpack top is in good condition with only minor cracking and flaking.
The Instructions on the inside of the backpack are faded some. The backpack is mounted onto some WW2 era Model 1943 Suspenders. The suspenders have a vintage WW2 to Korean War era repair. The normal strap connection between the two suspender straps is missing, and it has been repaired with another strap sewn on between the two suspenders.
The backpack is mounted to the attached repair strap. There is a 1944 dated shovel cover for an M-1943 Folding Shovel. There is an AMES manufactured 1945 dated M-1943 Folding Shovel. There is a 1943 dated Mess Kit with a fork and spoon, I do not have a mess kit knife. There is a WW2 to Korean War era M-1936 Cartridge Belt.
The belt has had part of another belt added to the back side of the belt so it can hold more ammo. There is a 1945 dated steel canteen without a cup, in a faded and damaged canteen cover. The canteen cover has some wear rip damage from use.There is a 1945 dated Jungle First Aid Pouch with a regular First Aid Pouch on the belt. The regular First aid pouch has faded markings, but is probably WW2 vintage. These items are old, and in Used Condition.
I show some reference book material that has information about these kind of backpacks. The reference material book is not included for sale in this listing. It is in used condition for something that is over 70 years old.There is some minor wear and oxidation to the metal parts due to age. It is in Used but Nice Condition. It weighs around 15 pounds LBS. I do not have the Cargo Attachment for this kind of backpack.
Normally I have old used items in bad to good Used Condition. They typically are in used condition and may have defects such as stains, moth holes, dirt, dents, scratches, etc. This item is old and things slowly get destroyed by time. Please do not expect something in new condition. These items are in used condition.Most of the vintage items I list are not meant to be wearable clothing, or as usable items. 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. 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.
