    Some nice stuff there - as usual ! I especially like the egg- and smoke-grenades ; they're getting to be hard to find now in decent condition.....

    Hello Guys,

    I received these salty 1st Pattern HBT Coveralls last week. Once worn by a 20th Armored Division soldier in WWII.

    Thanks,
    James

    Hey Rich,

    Based on another pair I have, it appears to be a 42L.

    Thanks,
    James

    JMD62,That is nice. Bigger size stuff is always better.
    Martin Bull,Thanks. Earlier a guy at Jake's Flea Market had a tube. It looked like a rusty pipe. He wanted 2/3 of what I paid for this. Rich A. in Pa.

    Hello,

    Thanks! I'm curious because I've noticed that larger size thing mentioned before. Is there a particular reason for that?

    They made less of the larger size stuff than the average size for the time. There were not a lot of 250 pound 18 year old's back then. I like to buy stuff that is in my size or larger. Also larger size items are more valuable. Rich A. in Pa.

    I guess you could also put more clothing under in cold weather if the uniform was a little big...Just my a guess...
