This is a Vietnam War to 2000s style backpack belt set. These items range in vintage from the 1970s to the 2000s. There are government stock numbers with dated on many of these items. But, some of the items have had the printed stock number information fade away and become lost to time.The "DSA" Defense Supply Administration stock numbers changed to "DLA" Defense Logistics Administration stock numbers in the year 1978. There is a larger size Alice Pack Rucksack. The oldest example of one of these I have seen was dated 1974. This backpack part has had the printed stock number with date fade away some. However, I think I can see a "-03-D" 2003 Defense Contract date on the main backpack part. The Alice Pack Rucksack has the shoulder straps, but they are separate from the main backpack part. The shoulder straps haf printed stock number information. One shoulder strap is dated, "-78-" 1978, and the other has the date information faed away, but has a "DLA" stock number from the 1980s to 1990s era.
The main backpack part is missing the metal frame, and missing the back waste support strap. The main backpack part has been mounted to a 1980s design "Vest, Tactical, Load Baring", that has a "-00-" 2000 date. The vest has some 1990s style black plastic buckles that have, "01" 2001 date markings.There is a Pistol Belt that has a 1980s plastic buckle, and a Quartermaster tag that has ripped off and become lost to the ages. There is a small Ammo Pouch with that has had all the printed Quartermaster information fade away. There are two plastic Canteens. One Canteen is a M-1964 canteen in a M-1967 canteen cover. The M-1964 canteen is dated 1992, and the cover has had all the printed Quartermaster information fade away.
The other canteen is a "Canteen 2 Quarts", that is dated 2004, and the cover has had all the printed Quartermaster information fade away. I do not have any canteen cups at all. There is an Compass/First Aid Pouch with a "-88-" 1988 date in the stock number information. There is a Japan made reproduction Military style compass. There is a Torch Light Flashlight that works.
There is a 2006 dated gas mask in a gas mask bag, with accessories. These items are old, and in Used Condition with wear damage from use. There is sun fading, dirt stains, scratches, dents, paint loss, rip hole damage, missing contents, oxidation to the metal parts, missing parts, etc.These items are no longer in the perfect condition that they once were in the day that they were originally manufactured. They are both damaged from having been used, and damaged from being old. Time slowly destroys old things. For Legal reasons, the items in this listing are stated as "Used Condition". What is a "Used Condition" item? It is an item that is in "Poor Terrible Condition". They are better condition than "Dug Relic Condition" items. Items are no longer like how they were the day they were first manufactured. Items have been used by someone Decades ago in another Century. Items will have defects and damage from having been used.
The older something is, the worse the condition will be. Wool items will have Moth holes. Expect Moth damage to old wool items. Expect clothing to have dirt stains, frayed cuffs and collars.Expect there to be Mildew and Mold damage stains. Expect buttons to be broken or missing. Expect zippers to be broken and non functional. Expect size tags to be missing or damaged. Expect leather items to be dried out and cracked. Hats will be crushed and bent out of shape. Do not expect clothing to fit you, it is not your size.
Expect oxidation and rust on the metal parts. Expect items to be faded from having been exposed to sun light.
Expect metal items to have dents, scratches, and paint loss. Expect items to have microscopic fractures when looked at under a microscope. Expect Electronic items to no longer work or be functional. These items are old and things slowly get destroyed by time.
Please do not expect something in "New Condition", or "Good Condition". These items are in "Used Condition", and are Relics from another Century. The vintage items I list for sale are not wearable clothing, or usable items.
These items are old and damaged from use. The item was rough weighed in an open box.
I have mailed items in the past to: Brazil, United Kingdom, France, Italy, Netherlands, Australia, Canada, Malta, Hungry, Belgium, Taiwan, etc. The local Post Office gives those boxes out to use. They have lost items I have mailed. It takes between 3 to 5 days for funds to transfer to my bank account.I'm trying to be 100% up front and honest. I mostly only leave other people feedback after they leave me feedback. Chances are, if you don't leave me any feedback I'll probably not leave you any either. I try to be 100% Honest and show photos and describe items the best I can. Items tend to be old, used, and as is. I don't want to talk to anyone at all on here. I will try to bother to be nice, and answer your question. If I see a size marking on an old Quartermaster Tag, I will try to show a photo of it. If I say that I do not know the size, than please do not waste both of our time by asking about the size of an old militaria collectable. They are old damaged relics in poor condition.
I also tend to have items packaged away to try and keep moths from eating them. I only dig them out if they sell and need to be mailed.
Please do not ask me to take more photos, because I won't take any more photos of things I have already stored away.
