  1. The Johnson market right now is soft I think. The values have went down. You can buy a original non sporterized one for 4k if you look around. I think he is asking too much.
  2. You are thinking the later WWII version. For a WWI, this one is all correct.
  3. I believe the rifle to be Marine and most likely it went through two rebuilds by the Marines. The first time was most likely when the Marines screwed on that barrel. The Marines did not receive any new rifles that would have had a 1929 barrel date, other than it possibly being a Navy rifle received in 1942. The Marines swapped some barreled receivers in the 1920s with RIA, but by the time of this barrel date the Marines did not receive any new receivers or rifles until 1942 from the Navy. The only new complete production rifles received by the Marines between 1919 and 1940 were Brand
  4. I am "Very Skeptical" at best. All I collect is US Marine weapons and I wouldn't touch this at all.
  5. Special Weapons Group. Any idea what that means he did? I think like the Boys Anti tank rifle or bazookaman, or mortars when I think Special Weapons. Oh and he had 3 stars on his Asiantic Pacific Ribbon and one star on his PUC. I sort of figured Bougainville and Okinawa. But wasn't sure on the 3rd Star.
  6. Correspondence with a workout program with Richard's address on them. This is a currency conversion rate chart. I think this was actually Edwards.
  7. This was found in the pocket of the Army uniform. It is pics of the Army and what looks like a Pacific location.
  8. Richard must have bought a new 1947 Ford when he came home from the war.
  9. Inside the first aid pouch is the last four of Richard's service number. The cartiage belt is not marked other than Long 1918. But it looks NOS.
  10. Now this I believe is his brothers grouping. Richard R. Scafenacker.
  11. I almost didn't include a pic of it, but it looks a coat liner. Not sure what this is.
  12. This is about the size of a newborn. I imagine it was the outfit he was baptized in, or something like that.
  13. The white cover for his Blues. The black shorts have Japanese writing on them. His old civilan hat he probably wore. The bag in the lower right is named to him, anyone know what it is? I don't recognize it.
  14. His acceptance into the Free Masons in 1947. His Fort Wayne Indiana Police uniform.
  15. These are the tags from his foot locker. His foot locker pics will be coming up, but it looks like he wrote his info on the footlocker and someone else wrote KIA and circled it.
