I'll try again, the add comment would not load my other comment. Harry when I was stationed at Benning, a Lt. had one and being a corporal a new family, no money, he would let me borrow it to make grocery runs and take the family to the drive in movies. Loved it, drove like a charm. Same color as the one shown.

This was the third design of the 2d Cavalry DUI, worn from 1924-1931. The sharp points on the ends of the bottom scroll again called for a redesign.
