Leaf Grass family Carving Plant Grass Grass Plant Lawn Bumper Auto part

Hello,
I found this tripod at a swap meet today. It looks unmessed with and has the early knobs. The pintle is really neat as it has the flaming bomb on the top and it also has the small marking on the side to use with the azmuth ring. I can't wait to clean it up a bit. Leaving it as is just cleaning the grease off. I picked it up for $1200.

Did you pick this up at the Redball MV show? I've been wanting to get to that show for awhile now. Regardless, nice score!!

Yes was at the Red Ball show. I always find neat stuff there. My best find ever there was an M1 handcart for the watercooled. I about fainted when I seen the guy roll it out of his trailer! This tripod will be on that cart when it gets degreased.

Sounds as if it were meant to be. Good job!
Be sure and post some pictures when you have it all set up.
And you even got the early gas bottle knob on that tripod, I'm envious. :D
