A great pair of C.A. Lund Company 10th Mountain Division Bear Paw Snowshoes. These are marked and made by the C.A. Lund Company of Hastings MINN U.S.A., one of four companies that were producing snowshoes for the war. They are also stamped with dates of c. 1945 and the military serial number 29478. This is a rare matching serial number military snowshoes. During the war and training many snowshoes were simply tossed into a pile for the supply sergeant to put away. Usually this meant that pairs were not matched back with their original numbers. These snowshoes are in excellent condition complete with their original leather foot straps.
