That is Cool! A buddy of mine had to burn several cases of unissued WW II K98's in Vietnam.

That is very nice!  What stampings do you see?  I have a "papered" WW2 captured byf43 P-38.  One of my favorites!

Honestly no idea what was required but it has a provost marshal temporary export permit for it,. As well as a DD603. There is the pictured war trophy certificate as well as the smaller Vn paperwork that appears similar to our 603

As far as markings go, just some dirty birds and serial numbers. Could be a scrubbed donation from Russia or perhaps French Indochina used. There is no telling.

It was offered to me locally by a friend,  the vet was local.

 

I have not seen any other Vn bringback P38's for sale myself although they no doubt exist,   was there one recently up for auction?
