Seems to be a general theme, but I just cant put my finger on it.

Thanks for bringing this one up again, Ron. Beautiful scabbards! The decorations aren't bad either .
I'd like to add the only 'decorated' scabbard in my colllection. I'm the first to admit that it isn't as beautiful as the rest that has been shown here but I like it anyway.

All of mine are un-touched..BUT my grandfather was a leathersmith (in which he taught me as a kid in the 70's and 80's..)
He learned to tool leather while he was in the Navy, in 1952.

I've seen the theme of the art work on Dogbody's scabbard appear on a number of U.S. air craft. Even one that looked very similar to the image painted on the port side of a CG-4A glider. I've looked thru my photo's and haven't seen the specific image I was looking for, probably dropped the image due to a small file size that wouldn't have been helpful. Here's another one I do have were the subject would be less vulnerable to the censors.
Wonder if the owner of the scabbard might have been in the Air Corps or at least inspired by some ASAAF nose art.
