    Nice pickup. Not a common name so I say the likelihood that it is this man is very high.

    Great score! I really need to start getting some of these myself.
    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

    The one with the V looks fine to me, WWII etc... Not sure of the one with the initials? He may have had this engraved privately. Since they are together at least you know the name.

    Thanks
