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

WW2 USA M1C HELMET LINER & REFURBISHED M2 STEEL HELMET An ORIGINAL WW2 liner for the US Airborne M1-C helmet together with an Original WW2 M1 steel shell which has been modified into an M2 Airborne helmet. THE LINER : An original WW2 manufactured and issue fibre/plastic helmet liner with TAN webbing inner cradle, sweatband and leather/webbing sweatband. Liner bears the INLAND maker's mark and is fitted with manufactured "at the time" inverted A side straps in tan webbing with cast buckles to fit the Original russet brown leather chin cup supplied. Light brown leather chinstrap for the liner. Female press studs to accept extended strap on the steel outer shell. All rivets are original and intact, the A straps being built in to the rivets when manufactured.. No markings on the sweatband, nape strap is marked No 3 SIZE W199 QM 39941 GEORGE FROST CO . Exterior painted in a pale green shade.This helmet liner is completely original and in excellent, slightly used condition. STEEL SHELL. An original WW2 made M1 steel shell with front seam join, which has been expertly converted into an early WW2 M2 Airborne shell by removing the original bale bars and replacing them with twin D shaped bale bars. This has been expertly done with no signs of heat damage when re welding the D rings. The shell is fitted with an, apparently, ORIGINAL WW2 tan webbing chin strap with twin brass hook fasteners. The strap has been correctly folded and stitched to the bales and extends long enough to attach to the liner by means of the 2 male press studs at each end. The shell is finished in a rough texture dark OD paint with added Captain rank bars, Officer's vertical bar at the rear and 506th regimental Spades insignia at each side, nicely painted in a pale cream/white. Overall in excellent, nicely worn condition and with a real look to the exterior. THE BACK STORY; I personally owned the liner for over 25 years, being part of my own collection and kept in the hope of finding an affordable, original Airborne outer shell - which I never did ! I obtained the outer M2 type steel shell at the time of filming Band of Brothers and the shell was constructed by someone who worked on such items during the filming (it was NOT used as a film prop in that production). About 2 years ago I sold both items to a collector as described. I now have them back as a commission sale.
