  1. I don’t know why it was there, all I know is that it was. 🤷‍♂️
  2. One of our local veterans, Dr. Mark Gordon Hazard, fought as an Infantry Officer in the ETO in the 79th Division. In his book "World War II as I Remember It", he stated that they used Snapps in their lighters. He said it was plentiful and worked.
  3. Thanks for the quick responses. The 2nd sword, which family lore purported to have been carried by an ancestor, was in a very RELIC condition, due to having been played with by his father and Uncle as boys. Bent blade, badly chipped edge, handle mostly gone, no scabbard. It would have upset everyone.... I didn't find any US markings on the sword in question. The only other visible marking is "N J" on the other side of the blade.
  4. My daughters boyfriend showed me a couple of swords that had been handed down through his family. One was easy to identify, a Memphis Novelty Works Cavalry Saber. The other, also a Cavalry Saber, I wasn't sure about. I took a picture of the markings, any help would be greatly appreciated.
  5. Thanks for the input guys. I have a couple of people interested in it, but have no idea what it's worth. What would be a fair price?
  6. After seeing this sit at a local flea market for over two years I bought it. This is not my area of collecting, but I hated to see it just sit there in view of the service represented on it. I thought that maybe someone would want it. If not I may donate it to the Armed Forces Museum at Camp Shelby. Any information will be greatly appreciated, there was no name or service number I could see. Thanks in advance, Ron
  7. I ordered M7 and M9 handles also. I carried the M7 on a deployment to Afghanistan and got a lot of comments on it. The M9 has a really good feel to it. For 35.00 each I thought these were exceptional bargains.
  8. Here is a Bolo bladed one Dale made for me back in November 2011. Number #1967 I always intended to get one made on a KaBar blade. They look pretty impressive. I finally picked up both a KaBar and an M7 with bad handles and sent Dale an email, but he had retired. I sent the M7 blade to Plowshare Forge and had a M1918 MkI aluminum handle put on it.
