Description

POLE, TENT, FOLDING WWI BRASS MOUNTED, ALL VG, USABLE, GETTING VERY HARD TO FIND. JUST DUSTY/DIRTY W/BRASS OXIDIZED FROM STORAGE FOR MANY YEARS. WILL CLEAN UP NICE IF DESIRED. (BRASS CAN BE SHINED, THEN SCRUB THE WOOD W/SOAP & WATER, LET DRY GOOD THEN PUT LEMON OIL ON IT). NO PIN IN END. VERY FEW HAD BRASS PINS, SEEMS TO BE AN EARLY FEATURE OF THE 1910 POLE (HAVE SEEN THEM IN PHOTOS) THAT WAS DROPPED DURING WWI TO SPEED PRODUCTION, THUS YOU FIND SOLDIERS PUT SMALL NAILS IN THE ENDS FOR THE “PIN” OR EVEN CARVED DOWN ONE END TO A POINT (ONE EXAMPLE IN THIS LOT).
