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. 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.

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.
