    Shnell leather scabbard ?

    I can't find any info in War Baby books about this , is it WWII and not reported or possibly a reproduction. It is very old but minty, snaps are green with corrosion

    the reason I carry a gun is because a cop is too heavy

    I believe it to be original but try as I might can't prove it to you. Schell is the spelling...by the way... This isn't the first one I've seen by far.

    phillydude, Your Schell vehicle scabbard is mentioned in a report about leather scabbards in CCNL 293-7 and it is also listed in War Baby III page 1361, although in WBIII "Schell" is listed as Shell, most likely a spelling oversight on Mr Ruth's part, I say this because he is the one that provided the info about the Schell leather Co in the CCNL .
