WWI US Army M1902 Artillery Knapsack or Haversack Pack - Khaki Color - Marked Rock Island Arsenal 1910 - Excellent Condition - Very RARE Item!! This is the early Khaki color canvas with leather straps.. It is marked: Rock Island Arsenal 1910. The Knapsack is complete with all of the leather straps and buckles. I see no real evidence of prior usage, probably in unissued codition excepting for storage wear.See photo's for condition. The artillery knapsack has changed very little from the original Civil War Era Design. The 1902 version is made in Khaki canvas with russet leather straps. It consists of two pouches 12x14x4 inches joined together with a pair of long leather straps and a handle.
The straps are long enough to add an overcoat or bedroll or to act as a set of shoulder straps in an emergency. This is a necesary item for any WWII Field Gear Collection. Check out my other items.
