US M1956 Field Pack. 1st pattern Vietnam War. Original item
This is a genuine US military issue butt pack and would have been worn as part of the webbing by troops in Vietnam.
This is the first pattern model which has two flaps on the inside which fold down over the kit inside to help keep the weather out, the later model had a waterproof neck.
In excellent condition with no repairs or damage
Dated 18th September 1956 as shown in the photos along with the contract number and specification
A nice original item for the collector
