    Thanks, Ade! I really am blown away by the kindness and generosity of our customers!

    The cartridge belt is a late war, all OD green version that appears to be marked: "Colo. Tent & Awn. Co. 1945". It's complete and in really great shape except for the white discoloring. I don't want to mess it up, but I think the white gunk should come off with a damp towel.

    The bayonet is the second M1 Garand bayonet that has come into our facility. The first was a semi-relic AFC.

    This example is an undated Union Fork & Hammer Co... made between 1942 and 1944. The blade is far from mint, but is in good shape. The scabbard is also in good shape except for the tip. I assume someone dropped it on a hard surface, which has caused the tip to crack and has allowed the fiber internals to fray. I think it has characters!

    I love salty stuff like these!

    My father just came home with these! He said one of our laborers found them on the line after going through the grinder! Authentic? Could someone help me repair the EKII?!

    Joe you could take the whole thing to a jeweller with a picture of what it should look like and ask them if they can solder or braze a brass ring on

    Thanks for the tip, Dave!

    I posted a thread about the EKII and I think I may just keep it as is. Someone pointed out that it looks like it lost it's ribbon suspension long before it went through the grinder... Plus, as is, it has a lot of character.

    Greetings,

    These binoculars were found from Finnish recycling center. I'm not even sure if they are military item, because they don't have "SA" stamp. I would be appreciated if someone could tell me more about these. Pictures can be found here:
