A couple new cans

Post by warbrds » Sat Jun 29, 2019 12:55 pm

Picked up a BOYCO, 1943, and a CONCO 1952 at a garage sale.
Also came with a carrier. I believe the carrier to be WW2, is that correct?

Thanks

That Boyco '43 sure isn't seen that often! Yes, it is WW II carrier.

Are the rivets holding the straps to the carrier proper as well, or should those be stitched in ?

Original pictures I have seen show rivets.
Also *TB ORD 92, dated 1944, also shows rivets.

So yes, I believe the rivets to be correct. They do look original to the strap installation onto the carrier.
