Early USN MK2, RH PAL 37, Original Sheath, Great Condition

Please check my page for all my other knives. I will be adding more as time allows. This is a great piece! The blade has never been sharpened and the parkerization is perfect. The sheath is in great shape, and is original to this knife. You can tell how early it is from the pommel, which is not drilled and pinned. That being said, the pommel does spin, which is common. This has not effected the letter handle at all, which is still very tight. Thank you for looking!

Nice early US M1 Helmet with Inland liner set. Helmet shell is a McCord lot #219C that estimated production of July/Aug’42. Shell features Stainless Steel Rim, Front Seam & Fixed Loops. Chinstrap hardware has early Brass Raised Bar Buckle and Milled J-Hook on the short strap. All original corking and it appears to have had a band of paint on the bottom to the rim that has been painted over. Possible NAVY use or to cover the rim as paint tended to wear off easily. Liner is manufactured by INLAND. Features are cotton webbing, Unpainted Steel Washers, Sweatband with green hardware, Nape Strap and Original Greenbuckle hardware. Liner has paint loss, not uncommon on early liners. 1942 production components to the liner also. Overall, a very desirable Early M1 Helmet that is a must for any WWII collection.

Antique Early U. S. Navy Type I Boarding Axe c. 1797

This is a very early U. Navy Type I boarding axe. This was the first model of boarding axe produced by the United States. It was gradually phased out in favor of the Type II introduced c. 1800, and later the Type III introduced c. Overall length is about 22.75. The head measures about 12.5″ wide (from the tip of the spike to the edge of the blade), and 3.5″ tall (from the bottom of the blade to the top of the blade). The head is marked US. ” and “V IM which is the Viewmark of the inspector Iain McLean (sometimes referred to by the anglicized version – John McLean). Boarding axes of some type were used by most major navies in the age of sailing ships. In a boarding action, axes were useful for cutting through nets that were often used to repel boarders, smashing through locked doors to get below decks, and as a general melee weapon to go along with the cutlasses, pikes, and various other boarding weapons. These axes were also a useful defensive tool. The long pike on the end of the axe could be used to pry the hot shot from the deck before it could start a fire. Axes were also useful for damage control – removing fallen ropes and spars. The “teeth” on the blade were designed to be able to hook ropes or wood laying on the deck and drag it out of the way. The Type I has the “bearded blade” where the two teeth point inward towards the handle. On the later models, the teeth point downward. The Type I Boarding Axe is a very important piece of military history. As the first model of boarding axe produced for the newly formed U. Navy, it likely would have seen service in many of the formative periods of U. Navy history – most notably the War of 1812, where the relatively new U. Navy famously showed it’s capabilities against the well established British Navy – but also in other early naval conflicts including: Quasi war with France (1798) Wars with the Barbary States (early 1800s). War of 1812 Operations against Piracy in the Caribbean and Mediterranean (mid 1800s) Civil War (1860s) After the 1860s, the boarding axe became relatively obsolete as a naval weapon. Developments in long-range weaponry and iron-clad warships made boarding a relatively ineffective tactic. Condition of this piece is as seen in photos. It has the obvious wear associated with a piece of this age – pitting, rust spots, scratches, blade worn down from sharpening, etc. The wooden handle is certainly old, and has been with the head for a long time (note the hand carved rounded end and the discoloration at the base of the head). It is possible the handle was replaced at some point during its period of use. Please take a look at the photos and feel free to ask any questions. The item “Antique Early U. S. Navy Type I Boarding Axe c. 1797″ is in sale since Wednesday, February 21, 2018. This item is in the category “Collectibles\Militaria\1784-1860\Original Period Items”.

Hi, thanks for viewing! To start, this grouping is very near and dear to me but I feel that now is the time that I must part with this. Unfortunately the health and well being of my family is more important at this time than material things and we will forever cherished the memories far beyond personal effects. This group has been in my grandparents garage since being brought back from the war by him and there it sat untouched and undisturbed until now. Due to my minimal experience with United States military I have consulted various people, posted to multiple forums and pages to better understand this grouping. Yes this is the same helmet that was posted on War Relics forum and various other posting pages. From my understanding the helmet is an Early M-1 Fixed Bale with light straps & Front Seam, with a Hawley First Pattern General Fiber Liner and original chinstrap. The Hawley liner is in fantastic condition as you can see from the photos as well as the shell. The owners name is stenciled on the outside of the helmet as well as on the outside of the liner. The chinstrap is in great condition and is original to the helmet. I know these can be difficult to find especially on original helmets so if you want more pics of it or anything else please me know! The helmet is 100% original in every way and if you have any questions, concerns or thoughts, please dont hesitate to ask! Further I will not sell this helmet/grouping so that it may be broken up or picked apart for pieces to make a quick buck. For sale to collectors Only. Helmet Heat Stamp/Batch Number: 63D. Judging by the M1 Heat stamp chart it looks like this helmet was produced in the early parts of 1941? This would also explain the various other themed items in the grouping. Those ships included USS Bushnell, Neosho, Essex, Mississippi, Sperry, and Aldebaran. Most I found on Ancestry through my minimal uncover expertise. USS District Activities, 14.
