  1. Thanks for the info guys..looks like one of the swords/machete shown in the last pic..is just like the Spanish Inf. Off. sword for cuba shown in the thread a couple posts below this by Chap 15 ....I didnt notice that post before I posted this..
  2. Wow..very nice work..that is something to be proud of.
  3. Hey Guys, Not sure if this is a U.S. Machete..I think it is but you guys are the experts. I picked up 5 blades in a trade and three have bird pommels and two are elephant. It is 20-3/4" overall and marked in four straight lines on the front LEGITIMUS COLLINS CO. HARTFORD No 18. The pommel is shaped like a elephant and on the back of the blade is marked S-2-25. If this is not a U.S. knife sorry and Mod should remove..any idea what year? Thanks for any info.
  4. I found something interesting on an original old WWII practice mine crate...this crate had both reed and prince and slot screws on the same box. A couple pics to show reed & prince were used in WWII.
  5. They are not matching halfs. Notice one has a A1 and the other does not have it.. One side has FRAG. and the other side has "FRAG" A1
  6. Very interesting..I have never seen a dated lead plug. Thanks for posting
  7. Looks like the yellow ones spoon got bent at one time. You can see the crease right above the Y
  8. No problem...I would have bought it either way..still great info.
  9. For reference I will add pics of the M32, M33 and the M34 primers used in mortars.
  10. Are you sure its not the M32 primer for the 60mm mortar? Maybe they come in different sizes the one I got in the mail today fits the M32 primer for the 60..
