Not overly sure, but I think it was the 441st Regimental Combat Team (or just Regiment) which was made up of volunteer Japanese Americans who fought in the European theater in WW2..............................................
bayonets are useful when in close combat, like the trenches.
The Balfour Declaration of 1926 was the British way of saying.....do not bring matters of a domestic nature to us to settle.
if you look down on pistol you should note a date over the chamber area. that is when it was made...................... OP: If that is the case, then my pistol was made in 1601; around 300 years before the patent was awarded. Then there is the 'f' at the end of that, which might denote June, it being the sixth month of the year. I really don't think that is the answer, but thanks for… Read More
It's not a hole, it's a rivet. In the event that the anchor becomes stuck the rivet will shear before breaking the anchor, thus setting the anchor free.

The spike bayonet is a little more efficient at penetrating, but neither one impacts the quality of the rifle itself. The only SKS variants you'll find the spike bayonet on are the Chinese Type 56 carbine and the rather uncommon Albanian variant.

It is argued that the .50 BMG cartridge is the most effective rifle round in existence, combining both size and power giving it effectiveness at even the most extreme distances.
Panama was a testing ground for some new equipment to be fielded in South Vietnam. The new Vietnam Jungle boot with the "Panama" sole was given that name because it was tested in Panama. The new Panama sole jungle boot was the same as the earlier issue, except the sole had wider cleats than the earlier models. Wider cleats allowed mud to be kicked clean from the boot's bottoms. The earlier jungle boots had what… Read More

It would reduce it. The only way a P38 would have a chrome lined barrel would be as a result of aftermarket work, or by swapping in a postwar P1 barrel, which would reduce its value for having mismatched parts.
It looks like they are selling at anywhere from $15 to $150 per blueprint on eBay, so it probably depends on the specific collection, including the amount of blueprints and the ship(s) involved.

Value will be driven by condition and originality. last month I bought a Long Branch (1942) in Virginia. Rifle in excellent condition, wood, metal, and bore. with very good headspace, and paid $290 (and was very pleased to do so). Anywhere from $200 to $400 for a very good specimen. Rifles that have been "sporterized" loose MUCH of their value.
From 1964 to around 1981. They were taken out of production once US Repeating Arms became the manufacturer of Winchester firearms, and the 1300 succeeded it.
In poor condition, these are worth about $6. In perfect condition, they can be worth about $60.

The war ration stamps are very common and the demand for them in the collector's circle is not very high. A complete book might get $10, partial books and single stamps are not going to be anywhere near as valuable. The sentimental value is of more worth, as it reminds people of the struggles and their contribution to the war effort.

Bluing is basically a controlled oxidation, similar to rust. True gun bluing is an electrochemical conversion coating resulting from an oxidizing chemical reaction with iron on the surface selectively forming magnetite (Fe3O4), the black oxide of iron, which occupies the same volume as normal iron. Black oxide provides minimal protection against corrosion, unless also treated with a water-displacing oil to reduce wetting and galvanic action. In contrast, rust, the red oxide of iron (Fe2O3), does… Read More
This is a very subjective question, leaving people bound to claim their own country a having the best army in the world. In reality it comes down to what you define as best. If you define best as "which individual Army is most likely to win a war against a foreign power?", then the answer is undoubtedly the United States. Although they have a smaller Army than the Chinese in terms of manpower, their technology… Read More

The 1918 US trench knife is worth around $300 if it is original, and depending on the condition. Poor condition really brings down the value. Beware though, there are far more replica 1918 knuckle knifes in the world than originals, fake ones have very bright crome blades, and some have the brass handle cast too small. I have a fake in my collection because originals are too expensive. The original sheath is quality made, the… Read More

First off all swords contain carbon, the differing amounts of carbon, control many aspects of the steel's elasticity and hardness. The best swords are made up of a balance of high and low carbon metals such as the ancient Katanas used by the Samurai. The sword smiths combine a higher carbon steel for the cutting edge and a lower carbon for the core of the weapon, thereby making an extremely sharp yet extremely durable sword… Read More

Hi, Yes a hJ belt has some value. I was once one of the largest HJ collecton owners there was in the 80' and 90's. First is condition, markings, size will have some bearing the customers needs and possible use. A mint belt should bring 20.00 to start. Add a nice buckle and you could easily get upwards to 65.00 to a guy who really needs it. 45.00 average. Again condition is everything. I once… Read More

The services use different insignia for different ranks. A double silver bar in the army is a captain. In the Navy and the Coast Guard that same insignia is a Lt. Go to www.military.com and they may show you the different insignias.
prices vary a great deal. I would offer $950 if in ex. cond. First of all your 1911 was made in 1912 by Colt or Remington. It probably saw service in WW1. If your pistol is described correctly I would guess a value between $2500 and $3000. I say that amount because the 1911 is a prime military item wanted on the military market to day.....The better the condition, the better the price...
the Germans did not keep any records as to who a weapon was issued. you will not find any info on history of a P38......................
"Dulce" is a PORTUGUESE female first name and means "sweet". It is my first name and I'm Portuguese, not Spanish. It also has the meaning of "sweet" in Spanish and is part of a few PORTUGUESE words like "dulcissimo" (very sweet), "dulcificar" (make sweet), "dulcineia" (girl friend); every word in Portuguese starting with "dulci-" has a meaning relating to "sweet". Please bear in mind that the Spanish and the Portuguese languages are not the same… Read More

The eagle was a common icon on both American and German uniforms. I have not seen any American badges with GS, my first though was "General Staff",but you did not mention a shield with star(s) which is the badge of a generals aide. But the badge might be German.

when was the Deutsche werk werk erfurt 22 single made and what is the worth? I was told by a gunsmith that they were made sometime after WW1 for export to improve the trade balance for germany. They were mass produced and sold cheaply. They mostly have sentimental value. It was the first gun I ever fired when I was 6 years old. I still have it and am now aged 69.

Fighting for one's country is not a sin, so the same fate awaits soldiers as awaits others. If there are a heaven and a hell, the soldiers will be consigned to one or the other depending on the lives they led and their own beliefs. On the other hand, if there is no heaven or hell, there will be no afterlife for them or for anyone: For the living know that they shall die: but… Read More
Probably not. Most of the replica knives do not have the "LF&C 1918" beneath the "US 1918" However, better fakes of this knife have surfaced. The only way to be certain is to have a military knife collector look at it for you.

The "jungle carbine" or to give it its correct name the Rifle No 5 Mk I is essentially a shortened and lightened No 4 rifle, designed to make it easier to use in the Far East and Burma. Due to the large conical flash suppressor, the No 5 Mk I could only mount the No. 5 blade bayonet. Largely price on this will depend entirely on a couple of factors....

Identifying WW2 German badges is fairly easy with the many books and webpages on the subject. The difficult part is determining if they are Originals or Reproducitons.
