One Canteen Cover has period stitching repairs. Some buckles are missing on the backpacks, but they are still wearable. The WW2 era backpack has a ripped off strap. The Korean War backpack has a couple of missing straps.
The Korean War Cartridge belt has a ripped out snap on one pocket. There are some soldier name and Military Number markings on items. One of the shovel handles is cut.
Some of the rubber lining in the backpacks is hard and old. One of the Mess Kits is oxidized and has some small holes. There are not any forks, knives, or spoons. They 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. A couple of the ropes to hold the canvas backing are missing.It is in Used but Nice Condition. It weighs around 25 pounds LBS.
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.These items are 70 years 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 weighs around 25 lbs in an open box as a rough weight for listing purposes. I have mailed items in the past to: Brazil, United Kingdom, France, Italy, Netherlands, Australia, Canada, Malta, Hungry, Belgium, Taiwan, etc. 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.
