Wilson Base Mitt

Postby chippalini » June 4th, 2012, 9:49 pm

I received this glove over the weekend, picked it up on ebay. It is a Wilson Army model base mitt. Can't read the model number very well, is a "5--PST", middle number looks like a 6 or 8, last number looks like a 3. It cleaned up very nicely using Horseman's One Step. A nice addition to my WWII Army glove collection.

I sold a Wilson 563XST that was almost identical to the glove you have - it had military stampings but I don't remember which branch.
