    If it were mine, I'd leave it alone. There are apparently enough examples of actual military plating that I'd just go with that story. Can't be proven but can't be disproven either.

    It's my understanding that a lot of people are leaving South Africa, not necessarily of their own choosing. Confiscated farms, etc.

    As for riots causing super spreader events, the United States...

    I was wondering about that today when I picked up some lumber. An 8' 2x12 was $56. Current price on an 8' 2x4 is $10. They were around $2 when the pandemic started. I don't think these prices can...

    Not much Covid talk in Pennsylvania these days. Most of the news seems to be coming out of California where a few counties are implementing mask mandates again. Sherriff came out yesterday and said...

    Clive Cussler and the four or five co-writers he worked with before he died. I'm wondering how much longer his name will be the main name on the books. I've bought at least four since he died. I...

  9. Going rate for a 1907 Spanish Cavalry Sword?

    Spotted one of these yesterday at an antique shop identified as a "vintage British sword" for $250.

    No scabbard, covered in light rust but would likely clean up with minimal pitting but little...

    That second photo freaked me out for a second. I thought you took a side trip to Vietnam in the 1970's.

    The World of Diecast Cars

    Picking up some Dinky diecasts got me wondering this morning about these little cars.

    One of my favorite toys as a kid were Matchbox vehicles. I had a hundred or so probably, mostly hand me...

    I ordered one of the Atlanta Cutlery ones this morning. Not sure if I should thank you or curse you for starting this thread. I'm usually not much into replicas but this just looks too good to not...

    It's in the US also. Massive suicide rates among veterans here. Way above normal society. They are trying to get help passed for them but not having much luck.

    The bottom of the mortar screws on the normal way.

    Pockets were one of the first places I looked. Nothing there. These pockets are pretty tight. Size is just ink stamped at the collar. You are correct though, I have found the tags inside pockets...

    Anyone actually try the wire cutters on bayonets? Curious if they actually work or damage the blade.

    Interesting knife. I did some checking around and it seems like all that are available now are from China which would make me question all of them. One thing I did notice was some have the leather...

    Not yard sale but two online purchases arrived yesterday. A Bulgarian WWII mess kit and a Japanese knee mortar. I've wanted one of the later for years and finally found one at a price I had the...

    My problem is I never really paid attention to the new stuff. Post WWII just wasn't my interest for a long while. Now I've run out of the early stuff and the new stuff is priced ridiculously. ...

    I get emails from RTI, I like them unlike many others. Checked out the new bayonets they got in and ordered one of these from them. Hate paying that much for a modern bayonet but it is cheaper...

    Looks like a good one to me but I don't have a US shovel next to it to compare. Like Taiwan, Korea probably produced shovels for their own military as well. This isn't one of the cheap...

    I'm familiar with the reproduction shovels which is why this one is unusual. It's not cheaply made. This could have been issued to US troops other than the obvious TAI WAN stamp on it. The cheap...
