What a great haul!!

Thanks for sharing. You actually got an SA dagger as repro and it's original?? Pays to do your homework does it not Fella's?

Love it! Love seeing those early suspended date bars! Is it just the lighting or is that actually a bronze army qual badge? I would love to get an early USMC one for a display I'm working on! Thanks for the pics!
