WW2 - Equipment & Personal Gear
I have two matching sets of 1943 dated "Lund" emergency snowshoes that are being sold by the pair. Both pair have the leather bindings, are in near mint condition and each set has matching serial numbers. One set is marked "31409" and the other set is "26359". These were carried in the rucksack and were worn when skis could not be used.
These goggles are in like mint condition, very supple and the strap still has elasticity. The tag reads "Wilson Products, U>S>Navy - Aviation Goggles, All Rubber Mask - Double Aperature with Plastic Lens - Clear, Contract NXs - 320A - Bu. Aero, Schedule 900 - 7979 Reading, Penna." It still has the wrapping paper inside the box. Buy them when you can find them.
When will you ever see real WW2 vintage NOS signs like these again? I bought a number of these signs from a gentleman who got them in 1945 from a returning neighbor. These signs were placed on the right front of "Red Ball Express" trucks to indicate that the truck was carrying priority war supplies to our soldier's at the front lines. This red ball would insure that the truck was not held back and given absolute priority on all roads. These signs measure 10" in diameter and weigh 10.3 oz's. This was a lucky find and when they are gone, have no idea when any others will pop up. Buy'em now. Would look great on your vintage vehicle. They are sold at $25 each.
This is a neat, wood cased 1st Aid Kit with a Snake Bite Kit inside. According to the list on the inside of the lid, there are some items missing, but they shouldn't be to hard to find. What is neat is the Snake Bite Kit, which looks to be full and they are very hard to find. The wood box measures 7 3/4" by 4 3/4" by 2 7/8" and still has the leather handle
This blackout driving lamp is from "Corcoran - Brown" and is a size 4 1/2" and is dated Sep 28, 1944. This style and number fit Jeeps, trucks and other vehicles that took a 4 1/2" front bulb. The lamp is near mint, but the box is a little rough and is dated June 22, 1944. For you vehicle collectors, it should still work.
You won't find a nicer one! This is for anyone that has a military bicycle, motorcycle or jeep and needs to finish the display off. The pump is marked on the foot stand with "US - Ord." on the top and "305602 WALKER MFG. CO. RACINE, WIS. USA" underneath and best of all, the pump works like it was new. How often do you see these for sale?
