    Only description I have is that the one on the right looks like a priest. I'm not quite seeing it but it's blurry so who knows. Delivery notice is for next Monday. I'll keep you posted.

    It seems unlikely that the same mess kit would be in service for that long which would date it in the late 1600's to early 1700's. Peter the Great also doesn't appear with a beard in the images I've...

    Glad you got something worthwhile. I can't imagine a Type 38 as you described bringing $1500. They don't bring as much as Type 99's normally and it appears what he has is a common example in not...

    Help with ID on copper mess kit

    Trying to figure out what this is. It's on the lid of what is ID'ed as a late 1800's Russian mess kit. The mess kit is well made of copper and I have been able to confirm imperial Russian marks on...

    I wouldn't pay that much for it.

    Hoten bayonet is a good one, one of the rarer ones and alone can sell for $200 in good condition and has the scabbard. Slings are also rare if original and...

    You got me on that one. This film was released late with little promotion but a lot of Oscar Hype. All I can think of is the Directors grandfather is supposed to be the one that told the story and...

    I don't see a need for a magazine either. Or stripper clips for that matter. You have to load the stripper clips by hand anyway, skip the step and simply load them in the rifle.

    It did win the Golden Globe for Best Picture and has been nominated for an Oscar Best Picture. They've given the awards to turds before however so nothing new. It isn't any Gone With the Wind, I'll...

    I believe you would have better luck finding a Brazilian 1908 stock than a German K98 stock and for a lot less. K98 stocks are becoming harder to find and very expensive these days.

    My wife and I went to see 1917 today and neither of us was impressed. In fact we both found it to be rather slow and boring. As for the equipment, it looked good to me but I only know what's...

    I was never issued a handgun while in service, few would be so probably not appropriate for US service anyway. I was never issued a bayonet either which always seemed peculiar but as we were not a...

    Not if you're happy with it. Too many variables here and not enough information. A complete rig has a lot more than suspenders, belt and canteen pouch so not sure if you have a complete rig or not.

    If the bore is good, that's a good price. I wouldn't buy it if the bore was bad however.

    Things to consider, the Finns took good care of their rifles. That would indicate this bore might be...

    Bob,

    I understood your point about the Mig 25 but not sure I'm seeing a huge comparison. They kept that secret and it was our own intelligence that hyped it up into something it wasn't and caused...

    M34 German Fire Police helmet

    I found this yesterday advertised as a WWII issue helmet. The price is reasonable if real at $120.00 but I can't make a determination on authenticity.

    It's a real fire police helmet, it's an M34...

    A lot of reenactors used Spanish helmets as they were affordable and wouldn't cause harm to a real German helmet. Quite possibly how the helmet I saw found it's way into an antique shop. The dealer...
