Default H & B bat, Special Services, Army

Not really a bat guy, I was given these two bats. Condition was not so good, but cleaned them up and added some Lemon oil to give them a little life.

Do not know much about these Special Services, US Army bats. Seen on some sights that they are rare, but can't trust what they say too much.
This one is 35 3/4 inches and is a Jimmie Foxx model.
I assume these bats were used during WWII by the service members. Can anyone add anything else?

Thank You

The second one give to me is a "Winner" Regulation bat. It is only 33 inches in length. Appears to be mixed information about this bat as to when it was reproduced, 1920s-20, or 1940s-50s.

They are interesting so would appreciate any information as possible. Do not really need a value, as condition knocks these down a bunch.

Thanks

Hi Bill,

I can't add much regarding the Special Services designation. That model of bat itself was manufactured from 1932-52 I believe.
Regarding the Winner, I think that bat is from the 1930s/1940s, and they're fairly common and easily found.
