Default M17 Battle Damaged Camo

It has been many years, but some of you may remember this one. Many thanks to Ty, it returned a couple years ago. It originally came out of Colorado Springs from a Marine who served with the 6th Marine Regiment in WWI. His story as I remember it, it was picked up after his Company took out a German machine gun nest. It appears he kept his trophy well polished.
