US WWII T-HANDLE ENTRENCHING TOOL SHOVELOriginal WWII item, but has been repaired and repainted in recent times. The wood handle has had a little putty repair, and then handle and metal have been repainted a nice OD green color. US stamped on the metal is visible. The shovel blade seems to have had some rusting and pitting that has been painted over. The cover is in nice shape and has some field repair stitching on it that looks like it could have been a wartime repair. Has nice khaki color to it, with green colored cloth edging around bottom. Strap holder buckle is in good condition, with just a few rust spots on it. Belt keeper is in excellent shape, black with just a few rust spots on it. Marked Kadin Bros 1942 on one side, with US stenciled on opposite side, however the US looks like it has been enhanced with a marker pen in recent times to make it look better. Overall, a very nice displayable piece, or would be great for a reenactor. Thanks so much for taking time to consider our merchandise.
