US WW2 Snowshoes - $215 (Sequim)


condition: like new
size / dimensions: 4'x5"x16"

These are an excellent example of U.S. Military issue WW2 era snow shoes, constructed of wood & rawhide. The markings are clear and legible (per photos).
They look to be in excellent condition with no splits or repairs, and the wood retains a great deal of the original finish. They come complete with appropriately marked leather bindings (soft and supple), which themselves are very difficult to obtain. I question whether these were ever used, or maybe just stored in a supply room.
Please examine photos carefully. Several years ago I contacted one military (10th Mountain Div) and 2 civilian museums, but then all funding was tight, and would not allow them to purchase them (they would accept them as donations!)They do have an additional number which may be a NSN or serial number and maybe their history can be researched by that number.They are a superb example of WW2 US Cold Weather Military history.
