It has some WW2 era and some Korean War era component parts. It is more of a Korean War era backpack than a WW2 era backpack. There is a Model 1945 Combat Pack dated 1951. There is a 1951 Combat Backpack top. There is a M-1944 Cargo Attachment, that has been altered by the U.Military to be the latter M-1945 type of Cargo Attachment. The Cargo Attachment is faded, and more used than the rest of the components. Both the top, and the bottom have flaking issues with the rubberized liners. The Combat Pack top has a faded instruction panel. There is a Korean War era set of M-1944 Suspenders. There is a 1945 dated M-1943 Folding Shovel in a 1951 dated Shovel Cover. The Shovel Cover has some period stitch repairs.
There is an oxidized 1943 dated Mess Kit, with an undated spoon. I do not have the fork or knife.There is a 1945 dated Canteen in a 1951 dated Canteen Cover, with a 1949 dated Canteen Cup. There is a Korean War era M-1936 Pistol Belt, with a Korean War era First Aid Pouch. 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. All that is for sale here is a Backpack, that seems to have all the straps, except the M-1944 Cargo Attachment has some straps cut off that the U.
Military deemed unnecessary when it was altered into the latter M-1945 pattern Cargo Attachment type. The shovel handle has a hole drilled into it. 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 13 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 13 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.
