  1. Thank you, appreciate the offer. Like I stated before, there are SEVERAL different "pinned" threads about posting pics. Started reading done through a couple, they all seem to have different ways to get to the same outcome, posting a pic. I can probably figure it out, if, I knew which thread was the best one to go with, any help on the best tutorial? I may take you up on that offer if I get TOO frustrated, thanks again.Jack.

  2. I know this is going to sound repetitive, but, I have been going down the threads on posting and I am totally confused. Yes you can use photobucket, no you can't, yes you can, this size, that size and the tutorial of posting from an I phone looks to me like it will take an hour to post one pic. I am NOT that computer savy by any means, and just throw the i phone thing out the window, heck I need a manual just to try and get to the e-mail function of a phone! I have posted pics from photobucket to dozens of other sites, that I know how to do. But, if this site dosen't support that, that's fine. I just need to know the EASY way to post pics here, please help. Signed, computer illiterate in Pennsylvania!!!!!

  3. Aquired these many years ago. Signatures of Alpheus Starkey Williams, Hugh Judson Kilpatrick, Henry Warner Slocum and Joseph Hooker. They are all "cut out" signatures from a document or/letter, unfortunatly not the complete document, with the handwritten indication of rank included. A couple of them seem to be from discharge paper as on the reverse side is partial words like furlough, etc. I know it is dificult to authenticate signatures, but any ideas on value? Or location of examples of authenticated signitures. Any help greatly appreciated, Thanks, Jack.

  4. I would say a "true" Military '97 "would" be a Cyl bore, but, in my opinion not necessarily "flaming bomb" marked. Some did slip through, but most were during WWII. I have seen many shotguns, marked and unmarked, that were definetley used by the military during WWII. Due to the "shortage" of weapons at the beginning of the war, the gov't "bought" many guns "off the rack" for training purposes, Ithica Mo 37's, Win Mo 12's, etc. etc. Jack.

  5. Ok, I'm bad, missed the Mod bore! I do have a legitimate 97 Trench gun, not marked with the bomb. It is documented as having come from a local sheriff's dept. They received it from the Gov't through some type of puchase program in the 40's. Anybody out there aware of any thing like this? Jack

  6. Looks to be in "riot gun" configuration. The lettering, from this view looks to be too "sharp" to be a reblue. I don't know how much a Winchester letter is these days, but if you call the Cody museum in Cody WY, they can tell you, and may even be able to give you some info over the phone, Jack.

  7. Top one also most reminds me of the shoulder stock/barrel kit that was semi popular in the 60's for the 1911. Came with a new main spring housing that was grouved for the shoulder stock and a 16" barrel. The shoulder stocked as a tag right on it saying it is illegal without the 16" barrel. Not sure if the 20 round clip came with it. Yes, I do have one.Jack.
