  1. There has to be somebody intersted in this - British Pattern 1944 webgear.

    Not sure if this is the right forum for such a thing or even if posting a link to a going auction is kosher for you guys, but I thought I would send up a flare on this.

    I am not a web gear guy...

    Maybe we can get back around to a smaller part of the topic - restamping.

    Everyone has to work thru this in their own head and decide what they are comfortable with. When someone asks me, I usually ask them a question;

    'Just who is it that you are trying to fool?' I...

    If there is even a hint of that cartouche left it adds to the value. Even if not, it is still the original and makes it a better package. At the risk of digging into one of my buddy's pockets, I'd...

    Value is hard to say.

    If it were all original in that range you could be looking in the high 2 grand range to start, taking condition into account of course. I would want to see the stock a bit more closely and things...

    Nice one.

    Exactly why they had to mark them.
