I have never seen one of these for sale before only in Cole's book if I remember correct.
From the amount of bids early on should be interesting to watch.
ebay#143258192668.
I hope someone can post pictures of this m1918 knife.

The knife is 100% correct. One side of the guard has been filed down slightly and it looks like a number stamped on the other side of the guard.

It is a nice knife and would be a nice addition to any collection.

It looks like it did. I noticed there was a bid retraction just before it got booted off. The last price it was at was around $1550.00?

Greetings Skip,

 

This was the first one I saw for sale and it was here on the forum (in 2011).

As has been said here before, we all love to hate ebay but there is some rare items that go through it!

Isn't it still against ebay's policy to sell these?  I assumed that's why the auction got pulled.

As far as I know it is against their policy. You can't even sell them at most gun/military shows in the Northeast.

I think they purchased ~100 for the promo, so definitely a rarity.
