  1. That’s about the 4th or fifth one I’ve seen. I sold one at the SOS about 4 years ago. I think they are uncommon and were not used for the same reason their contract was terminated. Being from Michigan I used to keep an eye out for them but no longer do.
  2. It would have been great to see him pictured with the knife. Unfortunately, the one he is carrying appears to be a different knife.
  3. Condition is average and nothing super rare but since I knew Lt Robinson they are historically significant to me.
  4. It is a Stevens Mdl 10. The middle is Colt Officers mdl target, the right is a Colt Camp Perry target.
  5. If someone saw the home made holster at a gun show I bet they would not even pick it up, yet the LT’s name inscribed on it is one of the most historic names in USMC aviation history. The owner was the first USMC aviation enlisted marine to be awarded the MOH (Tiffany Cross) for his actions 14 Oct 1918. He was a great personal friend of my dad. The 22’s were all his, not military so delete if not appropriate for the forum. http://www.arlingtoncemetery.net/rrobin.htm.
  6. That’s the stuff the CMP was selling just a few years ago. Good clean stuff, I think I still may have a few crates full with that same lot.
  7. Thanks for the reply. It’s an original danforth that’s not been modified recently. I bought it at a yard sale. Not sure what they sell for, I just know that there is not much info available on line.
  8. Thanks for the additional comments. My FIL was a crash boat captain in WWII until he transferred to a destroyer at wars end. He may have been issued or purchased the coat while he was at Patuxent. He said that the wood hulled ships were having problems with the ice in the bay or river and they took them down to Pensacola to be retrofitted with (I believe) copper plating (sheathing) on the hull.

  10. I believe this to be an uncommon GPA anchor with rode chain. It still has what appears to be the original paint. It hard to find original pictures of the anchor and even harder to find pictures of the line or rode attached. The chain looks period and has green paint on some of the links. Any ideas? A rope line would be standard 3 in.
  11. I have the same rig that Robin posted with a commercial 1911 that was made in 1917. The pistol was carried by a naval dentist in wwii. The Audley holster is the same without the flap.
  12. My dad was 2AD and I have pictures of him wearing a revolver holster right hip, butt forward in either 1941/42. He was not cavalry, he was in HHC, G3 to be specific.
