  1. Wake1941, that is possible as his dad, as well as Iwo Jima, participated in Battles of Okinawa and Philippines. I still have been unsuccessful in finding that double stamped character in any tribal alphabet or numeral, even pre Spanish Filipino dialects. The wrapped wire is copper, and the sheath leather wrapped bamboo
  2. AZNATION, my thought as well, but I can't find that character stamped in the blade in any native island, Japanese, or Chinese dialect/language as of yet to more closely identify.
  3. Here ya go AZNATION. Best photo I can get
  4. My brother in laws' dad was Army Anti Aircraft Maintenance but was handed a flame thrower and sent in with Marines to Iwo Jima. He was never the same. This 6 1/2" blade knife, which also has a thin leather covered bamboo sheath was just sent to him by his cousin yesterday, who my brother in law's father gave to the cousin's dad after the War. So it's back home. Anyone who could shed some light as to origin, it would be much appreciated?

  6. When doing family Civil War research recently, I found that this cup is earlier than expected, and was actually made for a family cousin, Casper Branner, Company C, 7th Virginia Cavalry, CSA. To me, much more dear!!!
  7. Thank y'all for you assistance
  8. Thanks guys but doubt kids stuff made from fine French wool by a military private supplier. Here's the maker Mark. Thanks again.
  9. Found this wool green beret in my dad's stuff. Probably given to him by a Colonel he worked with in 60's and early 70's. Can anyone identify the flash? Thanks for your help
  10. I'm told by the EBAY seller he got the helmet 20 years ago in the Lehigh Valley of Pennsylvania (This is region surrounding Allentown) with no apparent history, but from local estate.
  11. Come on, 0 yellowing, perfectly square corners, and this is stationery paper not the multi thousand printed heavier stock cheap paper the real ones are on. The margins are too big as well. My 2¢
  12. So this is at the Ford Willow Run plant , Michigan in July 1945, when the last one was finished. The last official USAF flight of one was in May of 1959
  13. Army MG stars are Horizontally placed, USMC Vertically, so this is USMC
  14. USARV72, the private purchase MLW initialed embossed leather cartridge box in upper left is loaded with the 375 Mag shells mentioned!! The lower right leather BAR box is stamped Jewell 1918.Mitch's two prototype MAC 10's with surpressors were sold in 2010 by the local police Dept for $10,000
