I sold one in about the same shape for less than 200 not to long ago. Guess I lost that one.

WOW!  $710, and almost 3 hrs to go. The blade is not in that great a shape, neither is he scabbard.  Suspect there will be buyer's remorse at some point.  SKIP

There was a much nicer one the other day, also with a Boyt USMC. some lucky dog got it for a bit more than half of what this one is at now ($710)

 

Woof!  Woof! :rolleyes:

The dealer had a bonanza day. Not only did he sell the  Kabar for $710, he just sold an RCC blade marked M3 for $758 about 10 minutes later. WOW!  SKIP

True
