#US2028 USMC Depot Made DQP Bandage Pouch
USMC Philadelphia depot made bandage pouch.  Textbook construction, this is a 'Type III' example (Collector term).  All depot made Marine bandage pouches are rare but this one is particularly desirable as the purple 'DQP 1940-41' marking still intact, which is almost always missing.  Used condition with fading from the sun and wartime Marine cleaning powder, this has the classic appearance of USMC equipment that was used in the Pacific theatre.  These depot made items were used by the Marines at the early battles and originals are extremely hard to find.  Classic piece of Grunt Gear.  $575

#US2029 USMC 'Boondockers' 1943
Perfect matching pair of USMC 'Boondockers'.  This is a true USMC pair, with 'JOHN J. DOOLEY' INSPECTOR U.S.M.C' embossed in the sole of the interior.  The pair also has ink maker information stamped inside and dated 1943.  These markings are slightly visible in the last two photos, it is very hard to take photos of the interiors of boots.  Size '6E' which is a small but typical period size, these are big enough to display well on their own or on a mannequin.  This is a great true pair of wartime USMC Boondockers without any issues, great for any Marine collection and probably never worn. $365

Museum Grade USMC Bolo Knife with Sheath, The Clyde Cutlery Co. 
Museum grade USMC Bolo knife manufactured by The Clyde Cutlery Co.  The very fine Clyde logo still intact, even with just gently use this finely etched logo would disappear almost immediately resulting in them always being gone on examples in collections.  This Bolo in my opinion can really not be topped, I've never seen a nicer one with the full logo intact.  Included is the USMC BOYT 45 sheath, also in excellent condition original to the knife.  These Bolo knives are seen in many photos from Iwo Jima.  Never sharpened, without flaw and only some small minor signs of aging as seen in the photos. *Sold*

#US2004 USMC Depot Made DQP P2 Canteen Set
Two matching condition USMC depot made P2 canteen covers and two canteens. It quickly became normal for Marines to carry two canteens in the Pacific due to the intense heat and humidity, and sometimes water resupply was not possible.  One of the canteens is marked on the bottom to a Marine named 'KNIGHT N.S.' in the typical USMC fashion.  This set is really nice matching condition, and it's ready to complete a USMC mannequin or will look great on the shelf with the rest of your USMC collection. *Sold*

Original WWII USMC depot made lower pack with early style riveted straps. This is a very special pack, it was issued and carried by James R.

#US2038 USMC Depot Made DQP P2 Canteen Set
Original WWII USMC depot made P2 canteen cover and black enamel canteen with cup. The canteen cover is a nice lightly used example.  The black enamel canteen appears very nice in the carrier and cup, but if you remove it from the cup it has rust damage.  The black enamel canteens were notorious for chipping and damage, it's nearly impossible to find one in mint condition, this example while damaged is included to complete the set.  Overall, this is a great USMC P2 canteen set. *Sold*
