Looks complete enough to satisfy me! I once saw an original in a museum. The pockets each had a red thread ending with a lead seal to indicate that they hadn't been tampered with. If that one is devoid of any such seals then perhaps the contents were added retrospectively? Either way...I'd give it house space!

Here you go Carl...a close-ups of a C-1 vest's anti-tamper seal. One's a wee bit blurry!

   The seller is currently on my blocked bidders list for being an absolute *** to deal with. He demands how you must ship his items and only wishes to pay the first class rate, regardless of the terms evident in the listing. I would pass on any of his listings just to avoid the mess of dealing with him. Scott.
Always looking for 32nd Division items and 13th Armored Division items. Please keep me in mind if you have any.
