    My knowledge is limited but what i can tell you is that it is not a rack number. It is likely the town or region that was given the rifle for their version of national guard duty.

    That could clean up pretty nicely. It is a pretty good example of a 1942 production and how desperate they were getting, the stock looks to be the hurried version with out ferrules around the slots...

    Good advice to follow.
    While it would be cool to dig up a bunch of silver roman coins, there is a risk involved of hitting something like that with a shovel.

    A 1942 philco radio I picked up.

    I figured a few of us on here would appreciate this. It is a 1942 Philco PT-2 some times called a "tropical" model. Bakelite does not distort with humidity like wood does clearly. I am in the process...

    Perhaps I can shine some light on this a little. First off it is only a sales gimmick and about as secret as McDonald's secret sauce. My step dad is from Yugoslavia. I have poked and prodded him...
