M1874-1917 MESS UTENSIL SET LEATHER SCABBARDS:  This is a complete pairing of the M1874 Russet Buff Leather Scabbards for the mess utensils knife and fork.  Continued in use through World War One, these sets of scabbards are not commonly encountered any more and seldom as a full set.  The two leather scabbards, made up by the arsenals from scrap leather to keep the utensils from tearing the haversacks and saddlebags, are in excellent unissued or lightly used condition, pliable leather and all the seams intact.  I have a few of these sets and all are in the same condition as the set pictured in the photo.  The set for $30
