A super looking example of the Japanese Officer's Dress Sword. It has a 29 3/4" long, bright blade that has either a W or M mark by the hilt. The brass wire is present on the grip, but should and could be tightened up by someone that knows what their doing. Nice bright, undamaged nickel scabbard with Japanese marks on the drag. Great looking sword.
Bought this at a WW2 veteran's estate sale, but none of the family knew anything about it, or if he had used it during the war. Measures 11 1/2" long with a 3/4" tube, has two mounts on it and is marked, "Weaver, El Paso, Tex. Pat'd". The outer tube has wear, with very light oxidation (nothing too bad), but the scope still works great and it has fine cross-hairs.
A real neat looking piece of trench art with roses and a butterfly. The wood base is 9 inches in diameter and the overall height is 23 1/4 inches. The shell case is approx. 2 1/4" in diameter, I believe it is a 40 MM round and the warhead is 5 1/2" in height. Looks like it either was, or was going to be a lamp. Very nicely done.
Have four of these cigarette cases made from a heavy gauge aluminum, measuring approx. 6' by 3' by 1/2". All were made as souvenir type cases, by a local artisan, for the GI's to take home. The GI who purchased these was John J. Butala in January of 1953. One was for him, "Choguri, Korea Koje Do" "John J. Butala 22-1-53", another was "To Billie From Johnny 22-1-53" with a neat fighting scene on the one side with a tank, looks like they're breaking out of a prison camp. On the third one, "Memory of Korea" with what looks like a POW Camp, on the other side is a profile of three men on a globe, "The men who keep peace in the world". The forth and last one hae stag deer jumping over a log with a search light in the distance, on the other side is a wolf standing over a dead sheep. It would be a shame to break them up, so all four for one money.
