    All I can figure on the 1940 is that someone learned that was when these knives were first manufactured and decided that would be the correct marking for it. I would also say based on condition,...

    That actually is a German field gun case. I figured it out when I was actually doing the presentation and moved it over to the German section. I have two German cases and when taking the shells out...

    The 1940 is actually perfectly spaced as is the broad arrow above it. It's just the wrong date for something that wasn't made until 1943. It's a well made piece. Just isn't real.

    Krag bayonets have been sitting at about $100 for years. 1917 bayonets have been about the same but for some reason over the last 6 months have nearly doubled in price. A quick look at ebay this...
  5. Clive Cussler passes away at age of 88

    Clive Cussler has been my favorite author for many years. His books are a mixture of real history, historical fiction and modern day events. Dirk Pitt was his "James Bond", an adventurer of the...

    Having some experience trying to ID holsters, it would be very helpful to put a ruler beside it so we can get some scale. With MAB D magazines, probably safe to assume this is for a small pistol,...

    I really enjoyed going after this WWI stuff and decided I'm going to continue watching for it. I'm not going to exclude WWII stuff but as it seems to be a lot more common, I'm not finding it quite...

    Quality holding it in hand felt good. If I knew nothing about these I'd say it's legit, but I know just enough about them to not trust that at all. The only marks I could find are the 1940 with the...

    My gut is telling me no, this is not legit. I know almost nothing about these however. Markings look good, scabbard looks good although possibly a late model NATO one. The problem in my mind is...

    The uniform and small photos by it are not mine. They were provided by another church member. It was his grandfather's uniform. The photos are of him with his then fiancee while in uniform and the...

    Just to point out a few obvious and not so obvious things, I have no idea what year the Type 38 rifles were made. The US 1911 holster is black or very dark brown but originally made for WWI. The...

    No, it just won't close because the 15 fewer rifles didn't fit in it anymore. I solved that problem, now added two to the bottom and maybe have room for 3 or 4 more. I took the bolts out of about...

    I was thinking about that this morning. I have about 10 years till retirement, after that I may seriously look into it. As fast as time seems to fly these days, that will not be that long.

    I took photos and a video of a walk through. I have to edit the sound on that though. I did not video the actual presentation, just after everything was set up. Turn out was not what I expected...

    I can't say I've ever seen anything quite that extreme but I see people overpay for a multitude of items and they are usually the ones I want. I generally try to be very careful at auctions because...

    M35 bayonet is correct but it should be marked SKy to be the best match. Value depends a lot on condition so photos needed.

    Holster's are not cheap, this type generally goes for $200-$300 by itself. I didn't pay that much, I sniper bid on ebay for less than that. Pistol started at $600 but was discounted to $400 by the...
