WWII USMC Trunk Seabag Pad Lock by Slaymaker
Part of the challenge of collecting and documenting USMC items is the difficultly of finding items that are Marine Corps specific. Where as Army and Navy items and even Air Corps items are relatively easier to locate, the Marines were truly "The Few, The Proud.." Recently I came across this little gem, a USMC ID Brass padlock at a local Militaria show earlier this year. Although I didn't purchase it, it was definitely worth the price the dealer was asking for it. Sigh....another item to look for but at least I know "It Exists!" Below is another style of USMC lock that is made by Slaymaker.
