You certainly have an amazing collection. There is a real Army surplus store a few miles from me and the guy has some really neat original stuff, the store is packed. However, all I have ever purchased is an ammo can, some stickers and patches and a field jacket, M65, that is as warm as you could want with the lining in it. It is called Roman’s Army Store. Look it up on-line. romans army surplus store - Google Search
Thanks. That place looked neat. I helped my friend atThe Great War Store in Allentown.. It had 3 floors. Rich A. in Pa.
Thanks, if I am not mistaken it was the store on Hamilton Street? I lived in Allentown and in North Whitehall Township from 1969 to 2012 and I bought t shirts with Army and Navy and Air Force logos and jets on them, there, back in the 1970’s. However, I never knew that there was other floors there. I also shopped in the Original Army-Navy store on seventh street. As far as any original memorabilia, other than patches, I have my fathers dress Army coat, his mess kit with utensils and his canteen and cover with the belt, from World War II. The canteen cup/holder is stamped 1917 but the canteen is stamped 1941. I suppose they kept them in storage from WW I and issued the cup/holder along with new canteens to incoming troops. He inlisted in 1941 and was discharged in 1945 as a Captain in the 29th Infantry Division. Actually, I graduated from Parkland High School.

What I got. Russian M-49 7.9mm ammo box,bugle,1943 U.S.N. binoculars,U.S. W.W.2 gas mask. Rich A. in Pa.
Here's the latest addition to my ever expanding collection of German gas masks. It's an M30 anti magnetic gas mask and a 1944 dated cannister.
The gas mask has a nice WaA53 ink stamp on the inside and the 3rd pattern metal snout has the manufacturers initials (who was BMW) moulded in to it.
Records show WaA53 was assigned to Maschinenfabrik Augsburg-Nürnberg A.G.(MAN) which were, and indeed still are, diesel engine manufacturers.
Nice mask. Are you going to look for a shoulder strap? Rich A. in Pa.
Yes, I will see if I can find a genuine set of straps at next months huge Militaria 2018 show.

There are plenty of reproduction straps available on the market today but they are either the wrong colour or the materials weave is totally incorrect.
Hope you find a good one. Got the 'Nam hot weather hats,Lensey and other toys. Rich A. in Pa.
Italian collar star and fascio,buttonhole pin and bullion Para patch. Rich A. in Pa.
