Hi JJ,

I apologize as I have not received the photos of the blanket.

Did you send them to***@******.*** ?

Would you be able to send the photos again?

If not can you give any indication of the condition are there any damages, moth holes, adverse smells?

Thanks,

Frank

Thank you for sending over that photo of the tag. The initial name is ***** ***** throwing me a bit, Rarotonga that you had in the initial inquiry, the tag had the name Raritan, New Jersey.

In any case, your 1930's era gray wool Army blanket would have a current resale value of 35-45USD in good to excellent condition. What most collectors are looking for are the pieces that made their way overseas to warm a soldier and came back, but they would still pay for the vintage wool blankets that are moth hole free and in good shape.

I hope this information was helpful to you today.

Any feedback you can leave for my service would be much appreciated.

Thank You for all of your patience.

Frank
