eBay find TM 9-810


Recommended Posts

I came across this manual on eBay, Nobody even bid on it, and I missed biding on it while working on my WC63, and let time slip by. I asked him to relist it with a, "Buy It Now" and he did, and I purchased it.


It is a original TM 9-810 dated in March 18, 1943. My WC63 was made in July 1943, so that is pretty close. This is the earliest one I have seen.


Not really in bad shape considering the age. Mainly worn corners, and you can tell it was heavily used by looking at the spine. The really unusual thing, is the front cover, back cover, and spine have been painted Olive Drab with a brush. You can see the brush strokes in the photos. I have not seen one painted before. I guess it had been used in a combat zone....


Check it out.
