    Hi! Been a while since I last checked in. I recently acquired what appears to be a WWI two mag belt pouch (marked R.H. LONG 9-18) containing what appear to be a Colt two-tone mag (no mark on full...

    Residuals Of Eclectic Taste

    Used to collect Japanese swords, fountain pens, pocket watches, RISE model airplane engines, some other stuff. Usually my interest shifted and I moved on, recycling much of what I'd previously...

    The barrel doesn't match the receiver, so that's pretty much the ball game in terms of collectability. You could remove the stock to see whether its serial matches either, but probably not worth the...

    I've been waiting for years for my (1980s?) KTV color TV with 13 inch CRT to crap out so I can buy a flat screen, but it refuses to die. I have it over my computer monitor to compete for my...

    Good idea, I thought I'd just offer first to those who've been helpful on this thread. OTOH, I don't see a buy and sell sub-forum on the home page list. Is it hiding or am I blind? :confused:

    Thanks!

    As I mentioned, I'm not really a bayonet collector, I just happened to pick this one up on an impulse for a decent price (I think!). In light of the helpful advice offered here, and to preclude me...

    Here are some pics of the bayo. The brown patch just forward of the fuller in the first photo marks the only real pitting on the blade, light as it is. The third photo shows best the type and...

    Thanks, Flying10uk, I did use the wrong terminology (I'm not a bayonet guy). It is indeed a non-hooked cross guard, not a quillion. It appears to me that the blade has a blued section as you...

    1907 Sanderson Bayo

    I recently acquired a 1907 bayonet marked "SANDERSON" and "1907" with "11" and "17" underneath the full date. Was it made in 1911 and refurbed in 1917? The quillion has serial number D16346 stamped...

    Thanks. I don't think I'll try to "clean up" this bayo, the surface effect it now exhibits is somewhat remarkable, IMO. I have never seen anything quite like it in over thirty years of collecting...

    M1905 Bayo Strange Patina From ???

    NR from the CMP forum, maybe the experts are lurking here? I recently obtained a 16 inch bayo (stamped SA, flaming bomb, 1908, US and 267649) off Fleabay. It cost only a C-note and obviously had...

    Officer's Sword

    As mentioned by another, this is an officer's sword, not an NCO sword. I didn't see a Showa or Seiki stamp above the mei (signature), so it may be a traditionally made blade. You might try asking...

    Thanks for your response, Johnny. I have to proffer up a "Duh, I forgot" addition, the trigger is a WWII replacement, so that would need replacement as well, so, what, another $100 or so? Given...
