A great looking pair of size 10 Cloth Top Overshoes. These are the second pattern overshoes, with rubber enclosing sole and water resistant canvas top. Owing to the difficulties in the mass-production of the new Shoe Pac boots, these were issued as a substitute until the end of the war. Tough to find in this condition.
This is as complete as you can get. On March 30, 1944, Miss Martha Jane Heist of Penbrook, Penna. sent a postcard to the Division of Public Inquires in Washington D.C. asking for some war posters. They sent her her postcard back with three posters in a mailer envelope. Two of them, the flag posters, are dated 1942, while the Sullivan Brothers is dated 1943. Everything is in like near new condition, just incrediable and all for one money.
Just a fantastic pre-WW2 photo album belonging to George P. Foldvary, Btry. E, 55th C.A., Fort Ruger, Honolulu, T.H. (Territory of Hawaii). Approx. 200 photo's of Hawaii, landscapes, volcano's, Troops, Tank, Ship's and a Submarine (S-25), Airplanes, Movie Stars like Spencer Tracy and Warren Oland (Charlie Chan), then a section on San Francisco with approx 40 photo's, some of the building off the Bay Bridge. Just great stuff.
Very well made and heavy, approx. 3 pounds. Overall length is 25 5/8", blade is 19" long by 1 7/8" at it's widest parts, the handle is 6 1/2" in length and the hand-guard is 4" wide by 7/8" thick. The blade has what looks to be a black paint on it and I don't see any maker's marks. Still a great looking piece for a collection filler or for a reenactor.
This is to a Lt. C.W.Hutchinson, 336th Inf. Rgt, 84th Division. The coat and cap are by "Associated Military Stores" of Chicago. The visor cap is a size 7 1/8 and has just a couple of small moth nips, otherwise a beautiful cap. Don't see any moth damage to the tunic, has 336th insignia and 1st Lt. bars. The Sam Brown belt is still very supple and also has the chain sword hanger on it. A great looking set, all for one money.
