No. The shirt is named. These were hunting clothes back when you only had to wear 100 square inches of orange in Pennsylvania. Not like today. Rich A. in Pa.

Re: Japanese & U.S.M.C. Helmets

Thanks. I grab them whenever I see them. They were all nice when I got them. I chipped/broke/repaired a few.They were easier to get to than the flags I used as backround. But at least I got to dust off my 2 pair of jackboots and see that they still fit. I keep the boots on top of my 1 box of flags on a shelf in the closet. Rich A. in Pa.

Re: Japanese & U.S.M.C. Helmets

I have been tempted by a few of the bowls over the years, but I try -not always successfully- to stick to my core areas of interest.

Re: Japanese & U.S.M.C. Helmets

If I did that I would not have the piles of stuff I have. This stuff is so cheap I would be crazy to not buy it. That is why I go to flea markets,thrift stores,yard & house sales. I do not buy from e-bay or the internet vendors. Rich A. in Pa.
