A great pair of C.A. Lund Company 10th Mountain Division Trail 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. 1943 and the military serial number 22612. This is a rare set of 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 very good condition. Black tape has been wrapped over the toe support rawhide.
