Steven Caunitz  My name is Steven and I'm a young collector of US Militaria from the Second World War. All items are original and from my personal collection.

Another 1940 Dated bandage pouch in near perfect condition, this one was made by The Hoff Mfg. Co.

I will be heading off to college tomorrow so sadly I will not be able to post as much as I usually do. I will try to keep the page updated though. Thank you all for the amazing support! Another recent UNIS pickup, looks like the marine that stenciled the number on accidentally reversed the stencil so the number is backwards. Should be "522". The canteen is dated 1942 and has "Jones" and "Luzon" engraved into it. Very neat!

Near relic condition 13th field artillery regiment painted Fixed bale. This one looks to have been in a fire. During World War II they participated in the Central Pacific, New Guinea, Leyte, Luzon, and the Southern Philippines.

Recent addition! This is a very nice UNIS marked field gear set all from the same Marine! It's all named to PFC. Vittorio V. Armetta and is UNIS marked to the 4th Marine Division, 23rd infantry Regiment, 1st battalion, A Company. Still waiting on his file so I don't have a whole lot of information yet!

Recently picked up this very neat Fixed bale M1 helmet set! It has a 1st Lt. Bar painted on the front as well as paint from there once being a large net on it. This was caused when the net was painted while it was on the helmet. It is named and I'm currently in the process of researching.

Picked up three near mint WWI Era pistol belts. Only one is dated 1918. These are for sale in a large field gear grouping on eBay, link in bio!

First pattern Hawley fibre liner in pretty rough condition. The webbing is all there and in good shape but the cardboard shell has definitely seen better days. It has a 2nd Lt. Bar painted on the front as well as a small shield on the side. I have no idea what it means and I haven't found anything on it. Any ideas?

Recently picked up a nice late war Westinghouse paratroopers liner. This one has black A-washers and the casted green chin cup buckles. Looks like it was used post war by the name and the RA prefix on his serial number.

Got a torso mannequin for the ETO captain. A little too big for the M41 but it still looks great!
