US Army Issue Saddle Bags

A much lighter color than the other set of similar bags I have listed. It is relatively free from preservatives but with minor

staining as visible in the photos. Some leather scuffing is noted at the bottom of each bag. A very nice set of bags with liners that you can use now. The only fault is that one of the leather strap billets has broken at the second hole and is about 2 inches shorter. It does not detract from the fact that the bags are above average in appearance. They are sound and can be used now. Marked; Long, W.J.D., and 1917.

Beautiful, starred M1902 issue Campaign hat purchased from Walter Budd by a fellow collector on 5/2/2011. Walter included extensive documentation that will be passed along to the buyer. The hat was the property of Colonel E. P. Easterbrook, Chief of Chaplains, US Army. He was a member of New York’s 202 regiment and eventually found himself in the 17th US Infantry. Along the way he served with many units including Philippine service. In 1903 his unit was fighting with Moros on Mindanao. Later Datto Djimbangan. He served in the occupation of Germany after World War one. His name is written on the hat band. Excellent quality hat, including hat band and superb black ribbon. Please don’t turn the band inside out, it is an issue hat. It isn’t torn but will be with those inquisitive hands. Nice dark black color. Included is Easterbrook’s silver chaplain’s cross. The top wire fastener has broken off, only bottom one remains, it holds very well. The M1898 Officer’s black and white bullion hat cord and is the original cord. No issues or problems with the hat.

Unissued Krag 30/40 Bandolier

Spanish American War Era US Army Cavalry Mills Pattern 1895 100 Round Woven Cartridge Bandolier for the US M1896 Krag Rifle .30-40 Caliber – Extremely RARE!!
A minty condition item, this original Spanish American War is not faded and has it’s nice original unfaded color. The bandolier has 100 cartridge loops for the .30-40 Krag cartridge. Total length is 68 inches. There is no belt buckle. It uses a brass interlocking clasp. The cartridges were held in place by a tiny spring that was placed in each loop. The bandolier is in excellent condition. No tears or fraying. This bandolier is 68″ long, total length. These are extremely RARE and are seldom seen offered for sale.

This was developed specifically for use during the Spanish American War to replace the Double Looped 100 Round Cartridge Belt. The added weight of 100 rounds of ammunition around the waist made it difficult for the average soldier to maneuver with the rest of his equipment and gear. It was having a bandolier to distribute that added weight over the shoulder and upper body would make the load easier to carry.

I have Krag rounds for this belt for sale.

12th Minnesota 1898 Campaign Hat. For Sale

100% original and QMD issue campaign hat to a 12th Minnesota soldier. Super example of a Spanish American War hat. Personal art work around the hat, looks like someone later might have tried to enhance some of the lines. I am not seeing the soldier’s name but it might be Decker. It has the original hat ribbon as well. I have NOT looked under the hat band because it is fragile. It will probably tell the story. I am unable to accept returns of this hat if you damage the band and want to return it. It really speaks for itself and if you know campaign hats, you will know that this is the real deal.
