  1. Not anymore, sold! All the best Frank Trzaska
  2. The Angston - Kox Co. of Chicago Ill. Contract # P-6417-4235 EQ let by Ordnance Dept on 5/22/18 for $159,750.00. Government supplied the material so deducted $20,750.00 from the total leaving the final payment at $139,002.00 All the best Frank Trzaska
  3. http://www.japansword.co.jp/ Look under the Militaly Item button off the main page.
  4. Excellent example Charlie, I have a few but have never seen one with a DI on it, bravo!
  5. Another nice find, you are a very good hunter, keep at it! Camillus and Schrade and Imperial often worked together. They did have the same owner (Albert Baer) at one point so much of the parts, systems, etc were shared. They also shared contracts, Camillus was the largest contract cutlery maker I know of. They made knives under different names for most other cutlery companies out there.
  6. Not that I know of, they are all identical. It was probably a "run on" condition where they just kept making them under a different contract number.
  7. Very nice collection of scabbards!
  8. It is an ugly story of family and greed. I was to receive it... probably thrown away.
  9. PAL Blade Co. had two Navy contracts I know of, June 1943 and December 1943. Made about 135k of the Navy versions.
  10. Well for the record I got # 2. And yes, missed a lot! All the best Frank Trzaska
  11. I just sold a Utica double marked two weeks ago, near mint in the box. Nice piece.
  12. That's my theory on many of them, simple mistake. I have seen pommels installed upside down on the M3 with the Ordnance bomb inside. Old rusted example with the leather rotted away, had a photos somewhere of it. Shared it with Vince Coniglio back in the 1990's but never made it into his first book. I have also seen Mk2's with the pommels installed upside down as well as a Camillus with the split collet nut screw pommel installed upside down, how they ever got it tight is a guess to me. In any case it happened.
