WW2 Contract 30 Round Magazine

Original Seymour Products Company magazine from their first contract started in 1942, they were the largest producer of 30 round magazines (just under 2 million produced). This magazine is not one of the “victory” magazines, it does not have a V stamped in the lower portion of the magazine, only the name and city are stamped on it. In excellent condition but sadly a tiny spot of rust is on the front side near the bottom (about ¼ inch size) as well on one of the feed lips. This was from poor storage after all these years, unfortunately this is common. It retains about 96% of its bluing and shows now wear marks from ever being loaded or in a gun.

WW2 US War Bonds Poster

WW2 US Government poster titled – Back the Attack, this is the more rare version without the 3rd War Bonds printed on it at the bottom. This one is in rough condition, a previous owner glued it to a piece of cardboard which I had it removed from but it needed patching up. Some small bits missing and a few holes (small) but the worst is the top left corner was glued in wrinkled so it cannot be 100% straightened. If it was matted well you could remove some of the issues but it will never be perfect but for this rice worth framing. Measures approximately 10 inches by 14 inches, this is the small version of the poster.
