FILM PROP ITEMS NOTE: Since the making of Saving Private Ryan and Band of Brothers there have been lots of items sold as original film used prop items. Some have certificates to confirm this, others do not.. The items offered in this section as Saving Private Ryan props were used in the filming of SPR and were supplied by the Theatrical costume company US ACAD. I know where these have been for the past 20+ years, I know that they originated from US ACAD and were purchased when the vast quantity of uniforms & props were sold by them. For items relating to band of Brothers These were obtained at the end of filming at an auction held at Hatfield Studios. I have no paperwork to support this, they are what they are. Although the principal actors used original items, or near perfect reproductions, there was no way the production companies could supply the hosts of extras with original equipment but at the time there were still quantities of some items available. Many other original items of webbing were also available, many were renovated originals and many were reproduced or post war items were used. I cannot offer these items as anything other than they appear to be, however if you trust my reputation achieved through selling WW2 US kit for over 40 years then buy with confidence.

REPRINTED WW2 PRESS PHOTOGRAPHS In the mid 1980's I purchased a group of items relating to GeneralEisenhower's SHAEF Headquarters in the UK - yes, such things did turn up back then!!. There were various items of (non classified) paperwork along with a group of original press photographs, many of which have appeared in books etc ever since. Along with the well known photos were a group which were obviously taken at the time but not released in public. I always called them the "next one on the film roll" or they just were not the correct quality for release. ALL of these originals were sold years ago, however I had some reprinted at the time and have had them stored for over 25 years ! Although I cannot say where or when the originals of these were taken , they do form an excellent and unusual reference of uniforms etc of the period. These are NOT ORIGINAL but reprints of official WW2 photographs
