WTK 24v Mars Siren value/interest

Post by lt.luke » Sat Feb 24, 2018 9:02 am

I’ve been approached with a TO 24V Mars Siren, Army data tagged. Faded red paint, one-wire present with several inches (12-18) but no connector.

WTK value and demand.

I’m a 6v/WWII guy. No clue on this one.

Thanks!

They are 50's-70's era M-Series, all were red color. NOS are out there if you check around. $100.00 or less.

I have sold three take off MARS 24 Volt Sires in the past several months for $200 each on Ebay. They only sat listed for 2-3 days. My guess is you would not get this at a show.
I am seeking information on M38A1's configured for MP use from 1953-?.

I am also interested in equipment and uniforms worn and carried by MP's during this timeframe.

Thanks. I went the quick flip route to a friend. Did OK, but could have done better on ePay...maybe.
