I rearranged my room and bit.  Here are my blades. Not as complete as some that I have seen on the forum but I like it.  Covers each of the sets of gear I have from 1903 up.

Thanks very much.  I messed up when I tried to post the last case and they are in a different post.  I hate when tech is smarter than me.

Would that M1913 happen to have a serial number?

Nice displays. I think I am going to copy the large vertical display. Looks very good.

Rick, thanks very much.  They were easy to make.  1 X 4 pine for the sides and pegboard for the backing.  1 4 X * sheet of pegboard cut in quarters will make 4 cases.  I have several on the loose to take to displays where I zip tie items to so people can see with their eyes and not their hands.  You will need some spacers for the back if you wall mount them.

That is a great collection. Is the second sword in your 1st shot a Japanese cavalry saber?
