Thanks again for all your compliments.  The collection has grown.

 

I am currently working on Book Two which will include these USMC's and other Mark 2's.  Hopefully finished this year.

Bill so very glad you've chosen this project of publishing and sharing your experiences in collecting.  Can't wait to add this new volume next to my copy of the M3/M4's.

I paid so much for the Case prototype's that it would be impossible to know the value.  I purchased one at the Case Auction in 1982 and then sold it with my collection in 1985.  When I reacquired it a few years ago, the price had gone through the ceiling.

I really like US Military guns.  I purchased a pristine and 100% original Rock Island Arsenal '03, made in 1913 this week at the SOS Show.  The blue finish on all the metal parts is beautiful.

 

Primarily, I just collect WW2 knives.

I know this string started in 2012, so I doubt anybody's following it, but I have to say anyway - the knives on here are so fantastic they make my head spin (also the ones on other [MANY other] posts as well.

And, IF anybody is following this I have to ask (pardon my beginner's ignorance on this): Are knives like the ones in your "old time" collections around today, or has all the super quality stuff been scooped up by now?

I started by just wanting to get a KA-BAR like the one I had brought home with me back, but now that I've got that, I've caught the bug and would love a taste if the quality stuff as well.

IMHO, the opportunity to obtain really good examples is better today than it was three years ago.
