    What would you know about victory? I killed a she-wolf in her den, armed with only a knife. I escaped the Caughnawaga Indians who sought to burn me alive. And, I was the sole survivor of a shipwreck at the Battle of Havana. So you'll excuse me if I choose not to follow your advice." ―Israel Putnam speaking to a Continental Army officer at the Battle of Bunker Hill.

    Wow. That is great. And agree on your view of them being overlooked.
    "Please", Thank You" and proper manners appreciated

    My greatest fear is that one day I will die and my wife will sell my guns for what I told her I paid for them

    Interesting to see the etched fingerprint on the tags, was that common in the US services?

    No it is not common. That is the first one I have ever seen.
    Very interesting.
    A rare tag I believe.
    A nice grouping sir.

ID:	902927I figured that this thread would give some people some enjoyment and that most time guys want to talk about the knife

    Thanks Steve How rare is rare I will poke around for one

    the print has a very heavy texture- what did this guy use 9 molar Hydrocloric acid. Whatever acid or base was used it was some seriously strong stuff.

    I guess this guy did it on his own. But sailing around the world, its hard to find a body with fingerprints if something happened at sea.

    Im off to look for one like this.I added a more detailed pics
