Item No. 2 Here we have a decent 1905 US Bayonet less scabbard. The M1905 Bayonet was one of the U.S. most widely used bayonet. It was used in both WW1 and WW2. It was originally designed to fit the M1903 Springfield Rifle. Early versions (up until 1918) of the M1905 bayonet had what is referred to as bright, bare metal blades. These were 16_ blades and which included a wooden had grip. After 1918-1922 the blades were Parkerized (phosphate anti-corrosive finish) and Blued and the grips were made from black walnut. From 1922-1939 production was halted. During World War 2 production resumed again. The new bayonets would be produced with bakelite (plastic) black or sometimes brown hand grips. These newer bayonets would sometimes be referred to as M1942, that being the year they were made, but in reality they were still M1905 bayonets with just a modification to the hand grips.

This one is one of the early ones as it has the bright blade and early wooden grip. The blade has been cleaned but you can see where the patina was on it before cleaning next to the cross guard. The bayonet is marked R.I.A. (Rock Island Arsenal) over a flaming ordnance bomb on one side and the date 1906. The other side is simply marked US. The entire piece is 201/2 inches long with a 15 7/8 inch long blade. There is a little sliver of wood missing near the pommel cap that you can see in the pics. The locking mechanish works fine. Still nice! $150.00

Item No. 3 Here is a really nice WW2 British Revolver! This is the Enfield No. 2 Mark 1* revolver in .38-20. There were two main variants of the Enfield No 2 Mk I revolver. The first was the Mk I*, which had a spurless hammer and was double action only, meaning that the hammer could not be thumb-cocked by the shooter for each shot. Additionally, in keeping with the revolver's purpose as a close-range weapon, the handgrips, now made of plastic, were redesigned to improve grip when used in rapid double-action fire; the new handgrip design was given the designation Mk II. The majority of Enfields produced were either Mk I* or modified to that standard. The second variant was the Mk I**, which was a 1942 variant of the Mk I* simplified in order to increase production, but was discontinued shortly thereafter as a result of safety concerns over some of the introduced modifications. The vast majority of Enfield No 2 Mk I revolvers were modified to Mk I* during World War II, generally as they came in for repair or general maintenance; the official explanation of the change to the Mk I* version was that the Tank Corps had complained the spur on the hammer was catching on protrusions inside tanks, but most historians nowadays believe that the real reason was that the Mk I* version was cheaper and faster to manufacture. When used in the manner in which British forces trained (rapid double-action fire at very close ranges), the No 2 Mk I* is at least as accurate as any other service pistol of its time, because of the relatively light double action trigger pull. It is not, however, the best choice for deliberately aimed, long-distance shooting — the double action pull will throw the most competent shooter's aim off enough to noticeably affect accuracy at ranges of more than 15 yards (14 m) or so. Some unit Armourers are known to have retrofitted the Enfield No 2 Mk I* back to the Mk I variant, but this was never an official policy and appears to have been done on an individual basis. Despite officially being declared obsolete at the end of World War II, the Enfield (and Webley revolvers) were not completely phased out in favour of the Browning Hi-Power until April 1969. The Enfield No 2 is very fast to reload—as are all British top-break revolvers—because of its automatic ejector, which simultaneously removes all six cases from the cylinder. British combat experience during World War II with the .38/200 Enfield revolvers during World War II seemed to confirm that, "for the average soldier", the Enfield No. 2 Mk I could be used far more effectively than the bulkier and heavier .455 calibre Webley revolvers that had been issued during World War I. Perhaps because of the relatively long double-action trigger pull compared to other pistols capable of single-action fire, the double-action-only Mk I* revolvers were not popular with troops, many of whom took the first available opportunity to exchange them in favour of Smith & Wesson, Colt, or Webley revolvers.

This particular revolver is marked on top of the barrel CAL:38 along with 41 (1941 year of manufacture) and British proof marks. There is also a light DI on the obverse side of the revolver . The serial number is P7363 and looks to match on all parts. The cylinder not only has the serial number of P7363 on it but anoter designation of ESC.321. The finish is excellent and the markings are fine except for a light marking of DI previously mentioned. This one has the wooden grips indicating that it was an older model sent back in for retrofit. It is in as good as a condition as you will get. Operates flawlessly! Outstanding!!! $495.00

Item No. 4 Here is a real nice WW2 dated Colt M-1911 A1 in the green parkerized finish. We believe that it has been refinished AND we have gone through the piece to make sure everything matches. The wooden grips are earlier and the barrel pin is earlier too. The pistol looks fantastic but does have one little blip to the finish on the forward slide that you can see in the pic. Serial number is 751XXX which we believe dates it to 1941. All markings are crisp and sharp. It looks fantastic and functions as it should. For this one $1,650.00 item ww & Modern Guns 16

Item No. 5 We found this piece with a lot of other WW2 German Pieces. We think that this piece is German also despite the fact that there is not a Swastika on it. This is an Aluminum Eagle Flag Staff topper that measures 5 1/2 inches tall and about 6 inches across from wing tip to wing tip. The piece was originally gold painted and you can see tons of gold paint left on it. One side has a triffle bit of black paint on it and the other has a little red paint on it. This topper is two piece and the two eagles are held together with a screw. The bottom has a screw or bolt hole in it with the the threads exposed. For this piece $125.00

For this patch $160.00

The little disk that is with it is an enameled disk with a swastika in the center and a red 'rope' type band on the edge. This piece measures about 3/4 inch across but has nothing on the reverse making me think that perhaps it was a center part of a medal or badge. As is $10.00

The original Army of Occupation Medal was intended only for members of the United States Army, but was expanded in 1948 to encompass the United States Air Force shortly after that service's creation.

Item No. 28 Here's a dandy! This is a Fairbairn Sykes fighting knife. The Fairbairn–Sykes fighting knife is a double-edged fighting knife resembling a dagger or poignard with a foil grip developed by William Ewart Fairbairn and Eric Anthony Sykes in Shanghai based on concepts which the two men initiated before World War II while serving on the Shanghai Municipal Police in China. The F–S fighting knife was made famous during World War II when issued to British Commandos, the Airborne Forces, the SAS and many other units, especially for the Normandy Landings in June 1944. With its acutely tapered, sharply pointed blade, the F–S fighting knife is frequently described as a stiletto, a weapon optimized for thrusting, although the F-S knife is capable of being used to inflict slash cuts upon an opponent when its cutting edges are sharpened according to specification. The Wilkinson Sword Company made the knife with minor pommel and grip design variations. The F-S knife is strongly associated with the British commandos and the US Office of Strategic Services (OSS) and Marine Raiders (who based their issued knife on the Fairbairn-Sykes), among other special forces / clandestine / raiding units. It features in the insignia of the British Royal Marines, the Belgian Commandos, the Dutch Commando Corps, founded in the UK during World War II, the Australian 1st Commando Regiment and 2nd Commando Regiment, and the United States Army Rangers, both founded with the help of the British Commandos. A solid gold F–S fighting knife is part of the commandos' memorial at Westminster Abbey. This particular knife is an original good condition WWII 3rd pattern Fairbairn with original scabbard. The blade has been sharpened some. The combat knife shows the wear of an issued knife. The knife is 11 1/2 inches long with a nearly 7 inch blade. The Crossguard reads WILLIAM ROGERS SHEFFIELD ENGLAND on one side. Brass handle has a dark finish over the brass. These were numbered on the pommel during the casting from 1 to 4. It is thought that they were gang casted 4 at a time hence the 1 to 4 marking. This one does not have a number so it may be a post war production. I have read that these numbers were removed from the molds after the war so subsequent models have no mold number on the pommel. Original scabbard has leg tabs, NOT stamped 'ENGLAND' above elastic keeper, and this keeper is torn. Leather is supple without any drying out. The scabbard has the metal tip. The Fairbairn-Sykes knife remains in production but this is not a new knife by any means. It has developed a patina that doesn't develope over night. For this piece $325.00

Item No. 29 Here we have a unique WW2 military knife. This is a PAL RH 34 Id'd knife. This one has a 4 7/8 inch blade that was finished bright but now has a great patina. The knife was 9 3/16 inches long overall with a wooden butt finished off with a steel plate. The grip is a leather washer manufacture and has H.MILLHOLLAND carved into them. The wooden pommel also has carving into it which looks to me an H on one side and a M on the other side with a couple of sideways S's interposed between them. On the other side of the grip is the soldiers service number. His initials are also carved on the leather scabbard over the manufacturers information. The edges of the scabbard were sewn together with copper wire. If this old knife could talk!!! For this piece $65.00

Item No. 33 Here's an unusual U.S. WW2 theatre made knife. This dagger type knife is about 11 inches long or more with a 6 1/2 inch blade. The blade is made from a file and you can still see some of the file grooves on it near the grip. The grip and cross guard are made from clear plastic washers interposed with black plastic and aluminum spacers. The pommel cap is a stepped down aluminum cap. The sheath looks to be a normal miitary type WW2 knife sheath with a notch cut out of it at the top of the blade part. The receiving male part of the snap has also been lost. There is a name in black on the back of the sheath which looks like MATT GARGAS JR. Could be interesting if you find out where he served. For this piece $85.00

Item No. 34 Here's a rare one! This is a Australian Army Stiletto . These knives are often referred to as Fairbairn Sykes Fighting Knives. While this is not so, the description does have some merit. It appears that the British Instructors who were sent out to Australia to help set up the Australian Independant Companies (Commando's) brought their own Wilkinson Sword First Pattern Fairbairn Sykes fighting knives with them. Representatives from Gregory Steel products in Melbourne met with these men and from that meeting drew up the design of the Australian Army Stiletto (AKA Australian Commando Knife). This explains the distinct similarity between the Australian Army Stiletto and the Fairbairn Sykes fighting knife, however there are some clear differences, the blade is shaped differently, it is narrower and thicker on the AAS. They are most similar in their intended use. There were two manufacturers of the Australian Army Stiletto: Greg Steel in Melbourne and Whittingslowe Engineering in Adelaide The most common version found is with the cast "Mazak" handle. Some by Greg Steel had a wooden handle. This particular knife is a Greg Steel knife with wooden handle. This one is in pretty good condition with an Australian marked scabbard. There are several cracks in the wooden grip but it's still as solid as a rock. This example is over 12 inches long with a nearly 7 1/2 inch blade. It looks like the blade saw a little sharpening but I don't believe it was sharpened much. All of these examples pretty much come down to a sharp point. The ricasso is marked Gregory Steel Products and that seems to be the only marks showing. Take a look at the pics! It is not known how many of these knives were made. One often hears the figure of 500 but this is unsubstantiated and no evidence has been found to support this. So far evidence has only been found of one unit, the 2/6 Independant Company where all members were issued with these knives. Z Special Unit was also issued with a number of these knives. Members of other Independant Companies also had these knives but where and when and in what number they were issued is still unknown. Four types of sheath are known. A cut down bayonet scabbard, a canvas sheath which did not withstand the rigours of the tropics and two versions of a leather sheath. One tapered conforming to the knife, the other with a tapered section holding the knife attached to a rectangular base. I don't believe that this sheath conforms to any of those but I may be wrong. The sheath has had a rawhide thong placed in a spiral pattern around the edges but I can see that the scabbard is sewn as well. There are several pieces of leather still attached to the thong including the top of the sheath. On the top of the sheath is a full crown with the work BESTOVALL stamped on it. On the back of the sheath is marked R PLASS in white paint. You never see these knives for sale! For this highly collectible knife $1900.00

Item No. 35 Here we have a scabbard for the USN Mark 2 knife used during WW2. This is the U.S.N. Mk/2 scabbard and is in pretty good ocondition for it's age. If you have one of these knives and need a scabbard then here it is. For this piece $40.00

CONSIGNMENT

Item No. 36 Here we have a M5 bayonet and scabbard. During the Korean War, the M-1 bayonet and M-1905 bayonet, which both mount to the M-1 Garand rifle using the same mechanism, were found to be very difficult to remove from the rifle with gloves on. As a result the U.S. M-5 Garand bayonet was designed and issued in 1953. This was a total redesign and looks nothing like the original M-1905 or M-1 bayonets for the M1 Garand. The M-5 is the only U.S. bayonet without a barrel mount ring on the crossguard, making it look more like a fighting knife than a bayonet. The M-5 bayonet has a 6 3/4 inch blade, and overall length is 11 1/2 inches. Weight is 11 1/2 ounces. The blade has one side sharpened for its full lenght and three inches of the other side are sharpened. There is a relatively large push button release to deal with the problem of working while having gloves on. The stud on the bayonet crossguard fits the gas cylinder lock screw under the Garand barrel. Locking grooves attach to the bayonet lug on the rifle. The M-5 fits only the M-1 Garand and does not interchange with any other firearms. There were three different patterns made: M5, M5-1 and M5A1. Quoting from the authoritative article "The history of M1 Garand Bayonets" by Robert Gibson on the Fulton Armory website. This particular bayonet is marked US M5 only on one side of the crossguard and J & D TOOL CO. on the other side of the cross guard.

There are two variations of this scabbard, both with an olive drab fiberglass body with steel throat. The early version, designated M8, has only a belt loop, no hook. This one has the hook and also has the steel reinforcement tip on the fiberglass sheath. The M8A1 retains the general look and can be slipped over a belt, but also has the M-1910 bent wire hook available. The model is stamped "US M8" or "US M8A1" on the flat steel part along with manufacturer initials. This sheath is correct for all post-war US bayonets including the M-4, M-5, M-6, and M-7. It was also used with the M-3 Fighting Knife.

This particular bayonet is in pretty good condition with al the correct markings and parkerized blade. The blade on this one has not been sharpened. The scabbard is also in very good condition and is complete. Markings are very clear on the scabbard. There is a tiny bit of rusting on the reverse but not bad. For the set $85.00

Item No. 37 Here we have a M6 bayonet and scabbard. The M-6 bayonet-knife is used as a bayonet on the M-14 series rifle and as a hand weapon, fighting knife. The M-6 Bayonet Knife entered service in 1957 and was mostly utilized during the Vietnam War until superceded by the M-16 rifle with its M-7 bayonet or M-9 bayonet (roughly 1968 for Army, used by USMC earlier). About 1.6 million M-6 bayonets were delivered to the Army in the 1960s. The M-6 blade and hilt are very similar to the M-5 or M-5A1 bayonet for the M-1 Garand Rifle except that the M-6 has a ring that slips over the flash suppressor muzzle of the M-14 while the M-5A1 attaches to the Garand with a stud. The M-6 is not interchangable with any other rifle; it only fits the M-14. M-6 bayonet markings The M-6 blade is 6 3/4 inches long, with an overall length of 11 1/2 inches. Blade width is 7/8 inch and it weighs about 12 ounces. The blade on this bayonet is about 1/8 short but it has been sharpened. There are no markings on the blade itself. The manufacturer's initials or name (AERIAL, AN, IMPERIAL, or MILPAR COL.) along with "US M6" will be found stamped under the crossguard (photo on right, enhanced to bring out markings). This one is an IMPERIAL. The non-slip grips are molded black plastic. The steel parts have a uniform dark grey parkerized finish. Imperial Knife Company was the main contractor for the M-6 bayonet. This particular bayonet is in good condition even with the sharpened blade and comes with the U.S.M8A1 scabbard which is complete and in pretty good condition. This scabbard has the late-production metal tip attached to it. For this outfit $75.00

Item No. 38 Here's another US M6 like the one above but without a scabbard. This one has the correct blade length althout it has been sharpened as well. The markings are nice and clear and the mechanism works fine. Take a look at the pics. $55.00

Item No. 39 Here we have a US PAL RH 36 fighting Knife - A fighting knife, also commonly called a combat knife, is a knife designed for military use, specifically for close combat. Although since the end of trench warfare, most military knives have been primarily designed for utility or tool use. Activities such as clearing foliage, chopping branches for cover, opening ammunition crates, etc. This is a US fighting knife. Manufactured by PAL for WW2. The handle is made of a series of compressed leather rings. At certain intervals the color of the rings is changed from dark brown to yellow or red. The pommel is of aluminum construction. The blade is bright with very clear markings. This knife has the 6 1/4 inch blade and is 11 1/4 inches long overall. The blade has b een sharpened but not overly done.

Item No. 42 Here we have a WWII GERMAN EASTERN FRONT MEDAL THAT IS DATED ON THE BACK 1941-42

The Eastern Front of World War II (der Rußlandfeldzug 1941–1945 (Russian campaign) or der Ostfeldzug 1941-1945 (Eastern Campaign)) was a theatre of war between the European Axis powers, Germany, Italy, Hungary, Romania, Slovakia, Croatia and Finland (not an Axis member), and the Soviet Union which encompassed central and eastern Europe from 22 June 1941 to 9 May 1945. Nazi propaganda dubbed the conflict Battle for Survival against Bolshevism or a Crusade against Bolshevism. Operation Barbarossa was the code name for Germany's invasion of the Soviet Union during World War II that began on 22 June 1941. Hitler wanted to recognize soldiers who fought in this campaign. He authorized the use of a medal. Also known as the "frozen meat" medal, the medal for the winter campaign on Russia . This medal was instituted in May 26th, 1942. While most of them that I saw for sale has a ribbon this one has a stud and a clutchback on it. For this piece $5.00

Item No. 44 Here is a rare POW tag for a Japanese Prisoner. It has been estimated that between 19,500 and 50,000 Japanese military personnel surrendered to Allied forces prior to the end of the Pacific War in August 1945.[1] The number of Japanese soldiers, sailors, and airmen who surrendered was limited by the Japanese military indoctrinating its personnel to fight to the death, Allied personnel often being unwilling to take prisoners,[2] and many Japanese soldiers believing that those who surrendered would be killed by their captors. Western Allied governments and senior military commanders directed that Japanese POWs be treated in accordance with relevant international conventions. In practice though, many front-line soldiers were unwilling to accept the surrender of Japanese personnel due to a combination of racist attitudes and reports of atrocities conducted against Allied troops. A campaign launched in 1944 to encourage prisoner-taking was partially successful, and the number of prisoners taken increased significantly in the last year of the war. Japanese POWs often believed that by surrendering they had broken all ties with Japan, and many provided military intelligence to the Allies. The prisoners taken by the western Allies were held in generally good conditions in camps located in Australia, New Zealand, India and the United States. Those taken by the Soviet Union were treated harshly in work camps located in Siberia. Following the war the prisoners were repatriated to Japan, though the United States and Britain retained thousands until 1946 and 1947 respectively and the Soviet Union continued to hold hundreds of thousands of Japanese POWs until the early 1950s.

Even though many thousands of Japanese Soldiers and Sailors surrendered you will rarely find one of these tags. A search on the internet turned up none. This piece shows wear and staining but what the heck it's here. Take a look at the pics. It ot only says 'JAP' on it but 'Korean' and also 'Native'. For this rare piece. $85.00

Item No. 45 (CONSIGNMENT) Here is an WW2 SA dagger that was altered by the GI who captured it. He took the original grips off and made lucite grips for it inserting photos of his wide and child under the plastic. The rest of the dagger is just fine and it comes iwth a nice black painted sheath. The etching on the blade is fine while the makers mark is worn on one side but may not have been stamped deeply on that side. There are no sharpening marks but there is one minor nick to the blade. Unique Trench Art! $395.00

The aluminum pommel cap and the crossguard have had the swastika removed. $495.00

All of the markings are nice and bright. The serial number is 7399 and all numbers match except the magazine which is 9398. The action is crisp and the grips are really very nice.

Item No. 57 Here we have a WW2 era Kano Swiss movement Mfg wrist watch with simple leather band that was used by Germans during WW2. I was told that this is a bringback taken from a WW2 German Officer. The watch runs and keeps time. The back is marked KANO EDELSTAHL 01918. KANO is the watch company and EDELSTAHL is a german word that means ‘Stainless Steel’, the 01918 is the serial number of the watch. The face is also marked KANO and SWISS MADE (at least the movement is Swiss made). The band is a simple leather band that is one piece and goes across the back.

Item No. 59 Here we have various German banknotes. There are some 1904 Funf Marks, 50 mark Reichsbanknote 1920, 20 Reichsmark Reichsbanknote 1929, MillionenMark 1933, 1000 Reichsbanknote 1910, 20000 Reichsbanknote 1923 and a 50000 Reichsbanknote 1922. E-mail for prices. Check out the pics.

Item No. 60 Here we have a: Series 521 Military Payment Certificate $10.00 One really neat thing about series 521 military payment certificates is that they were the first issue to have the denomination of each note printed on the reverse. All previous issues just had a standard generic design on the backs. This also marked the first time that Forbes Lithograph Corporation was responsible for the entire printing. Forbes incorporated “real people” into the designs of the one, five, and ten dollar denominations instead of the previous classically inspired designs. Series 521 MPCs were used in 19 different countries between May 25th, 1954 and May 27th, 1958. Almost 317 million dollars worth of currency was issued across all seven denominations during that time period. For that reason, most 521 notes are very common. However, there are certainly exceptions to that rule. Scarce print runs and replacements are out there.

Value of Series 521 Ten Dollars MPC Type: Series 521 Denomination: Ten Dollars Number of Notes Printed: 24,400,000 First Issued: May 25, 1954 Redeemed: May 27, 1958 Value In Very Low Grades: $20 Value In Perfect Condition: $750 It is pretty easy to understand the value of series 521 military payment certificates made for the ten dollar denomination. They were just issued in one print run. Over 24 million regular notes were printed, but only 285,000 replacements were issued. Replacements are worth about 20 times more money than standard issues. Both look very similar, each note says “for use only in united states military establishments by united states authorized personnel in accordance with applicable rules and regulations.” Replacement series 521 $10 bills have a serial number that does not end with the letter E.

This particular bill is not a replacement. It’s in good condition showing nice color but does have folds. Take a look at the pics! For this note $40.00

Item No. 64

Here are pics of two Japanese Type 30 Bayonets. The top one has been sold.

Here is a pattern 1902 U.S. Army Sword that definitely has seen better days! This one is the early one with the German Silver guard. Two of the branches has been cut off the guard and now the blade is 21 1/1 inches long. This was a Springfield Armory sword so it's a shame it was cut down but it was cut down for a reason.

Item No. 67
