  1. Hamilton Co. Fairgrounds, 2003 Pleasant St., Noblesville Indiana 9:00-4:00pm. For more info call Phil at 317-332-7819
  2. Went back and reviewed your earlier photos and I agree, they do look like the depot made scabbard covers. The photos don't lie so that would mean they were made at least by '37 or earlier. That's a lot earlier than the one-source info I have (1940) and I certainly appreciate the additional information. Thanks, Steve
  3. Yes, very nice photos! So is the side seam, black folded tip M-1905 scabbard cover correct for 1937? The only info I have just states that they were made "circa 1940". I guess that leaves them a bit of wiggle room but I'd like to have a better idea of when they were actually made. Thanks for those excellent photos. Steve
  4. The spring GIMS has been canceled due to the Hamilton Co. Fairgrounds closing all buildings until further notice. The fall show is scheduled for Oct. 17, 2020.
  5. Wasn't there a three magazine pouch also? It may have been an early experimental but I do remember seeing it somewhere----probably here!
  6. Thanks for the comments guys. I don't think it was ever issued. I guess the belt doesn't actually fit the depot made gear title---but I couldn't resist!
  7. Last one, still have this one: (Sorry about the color difference between the first two--just an editing error) Does anyone know if these were in fact made at Phila. Depot? I have heard that they were from one source only.
  8. Aznation is THE Man! He's gone above and beyond several times when I've asked for research help here. Thank you sir!
  9. I don't have a 1907 or 1908, but this 1909 has serif's on the US only: Slightly off-topic, but still relevant, this 1913 Patton Saber has no serifs at all. So roughly, we could say 1906 everything had serifs, by 1908 only the US marking was serif'd, and by 1912 or 1913 the serifs were gone. Does this sound correct? Sorry, last pic was too large to add, so 1 more post to see it.
  10. My 1906 SA and 1906 RIA has the serif's-
  11. Odd that only the US marking has serif's and the SA does not. Maybe a transition year? I'll check a few of mine.
