  1. That is all good information. Thank you. My father was a forward observer for 106RR crew in the early 1960's, 3rd Army, stationed in Germany, fighting the cold war. Sadly he is gone now, I may have a pic or two of him with his crew, have to see if I can locate.
  2. A friend of mine works in a recycling facility and rather than go through the hassle of disposal, when he finds things like this that he knows I collect he sets them aside. He has been doing this for years and eventually I'll get around to posting some of it. Anyway last week I saw him and he had the attached image stuff. From Left to right The round with the link on it is a SLAP Round, head-stamped "WCC 90 SLAP" the tip is slightly magnetic and sabot-ted - very cool. The three larger rounds are head-stamped "LC 58" - they look like a shortened .50 Cal - measure around .506 inch d
  3. That is interesting. I talked to owner and he said that the number on the knife and the sheath matches the number on his fathers dogtags but that name doesn't match. I did find some information while seaching online about a man named Floyd Nichols - he made knifes for servicemen during WW2, he was from Nebraska. I found some knifes, not the same blade style but similar brass wrapped handle, I'm thinking he may be the maker, just my opinion though.
  4. His fathers name was Orlando Scalise. I found that Cornish made leather sheaths but not much else. Ohio is interesting, though, his family is from Ohio. Thank you
  5. A friend of mine who I work with knows that I like these kind of things was kind enough to bring in his fathers WW2 dagger. He said he had it made special for him - I believe he said his father was a machine gunner in Army Air Corp. It is one of the coolest daggers I have seen - the handle is made of a single piece of brass and wrapped/wound to form the handle. I fits really well in the hand and has great balance. The sheath is original and has his name on it, curious that it is serialized? Maybe his service number, not sure. The craftsmanship is really amazing, top quality in the dagger an
  6. USdog, What is the blade length and overall length? Also, looks like it is marked "Coalaunca & Co" am I reading that right?
  7. American Heritage, sorry for the delayed response, I'm not on the forum regularly. I don't know what school cadet sword is from - has "E Plurbus Unem" on one side and "U.S." on the other - SPRINGFIELD ARMORY, SPRINGFIELD MASS U.S.A
  8. Hey alright! that's cool as I say I'm not a patch person I thought I was spending to much. Thx for the feedback - do you think they are they all real?
