I'm on location in NYC, and to be frank I am finding the militaria hunting leaves a little to be desired, lol.
I have found a stow of Nazi police bayonets and one sword (in Manhattan of all places), but the pawnbroker is delusional as to value - I am working him, lol.
My Craigslist hunting found these two, for $200 total - which I feel is little enough money they count as souvenirs from the trip.
The K98 bayo is OK and needs some oil on it, it will go into the collection, maybe to display on a rifle.
The M1880 is not in my collecting wheelhouse, so any info. would be appreciated.
I have about three days off, and have found some helmets and a flag I'm taking the subway to go look at.
If anyone has any leads, feel free to share.
Oh, and I found a G33/40 but that was an upstate NY gunlist buy, and I shipped it home via my FFL - yeah, I'd fly out of JFK with a rifle in my luggage, probably legal but not for me to find out.
Any tidbits on the M1880 would be appreciated, I can't find much about it on-line.
