Welcome to my page of Histories and Research Projects. As more are researched and published, they will be added. Experience has shown that when one reads a history, many questions are generated. Please reserve your questions to email only. Any other format cannot be answered. The purpose of these projects is to help spread the knowledge and entertain. Please do not email me asking how much something is worth. Those questions cannot be answered. There are too many variables, like how it is sold (Auction, Gun Show, Message Board) and regional effects to know what somebody is willing to pay. Also please note that most Identification subjects will not reveal all characteristics. Some information will not be given out. This is to prevent the scam artists from changing their reproductions and correcting the improper traits. As time goes on the reproductions are getting better and better. One day there will be and endless supply of "Original WWII GI....", you name it.
Do to a Website Collapse, some of these pages are being rebuilt.
