  4. OMPF on request. I agree with you all on the KSM. I do see the UN medal with stars on them as well sometimes. Is this correct or should they actually be on the KSM? His final 214 listed none of these. Just a VCM with 5 BSD and a VSM.
  5. Hello all, can I get a little assistance in this soldiers uniform DI? He was in Infantry 2ID during the Korean war as far as I know, but later he was track/wheel vehicle mechanic. Thank you.
  6. Hi all, I am having a little trouble with the top left, SSM? And the DI could use an ID as well if you can. Thank you
  7. HOWDY Dick.....I see by your avatar you are SF? Or interested in such things? SE Texas here.....
  8. Screw back, pin back and clutch back.....these are both clutch back and I am trying to ascertain which type would be period correct for 1945-46.
  9. Comparison of the stamping......
  10. Here are 2 more pics Doyler.......
  11. As I said I am learning. I made the call on info from another collector in another forum and info provided through Frank Trzaska's website. http://www.usmilitaryknives.com/camillus.htm Pic is a comparison between 3 Camillus MK2's. Suspect is on the left of course. I'm all ears and eyes.....
  12. Turns out he had two of the knifes mixed up, his concerns were with this Camillus, N.Y U.S.M.C. blade marked example. After comparing this to some other Camillus, N.Y. made knifes, I see the short...."The WW II era knife has a long sweeping false edge while the current repro has a very short and sharply curved false edge" http://www.usmilitaryknives.com/camillus.htm
  13. Thank you. I am new at this and although I am buying most of these from experienced collectors, I had one mention this to me as fake, a modern reproduction. I was unsure about the style of the PAL logo on this one.
  14. Not the same knife, but the same style "PAL" on the one in question.
  15. Yes I know everyone has and opinion and some of them.......so take a look. Stamped PAL on one side of blade and USMC on the other. Pretty sure it isn't an original WW@. the sheath on the other hand...
