Lot # 20 (Sale Order: 21 of 311)
This pair of Rare Balkan Flintlock Pistols are not your average tourist pieces, they are period working flintlocks showing much use. Both feature gold-inlaid barrels of 50 caliber, brass furniture, pseudo cleaning rods and carved walnut stocks. They are fitted with inlaid semi-precious stones, of which a few are missing. The lock on one pistol still works (it shows the most use), while the other pistol's lock has a sear problem (and shows less wear). Both are similar, but are slightly different and were probably produced by the same gunsmith at far different times. Both come with a very nice heavy embroidered fabric and leather "holster" that neatly holds both pistols. The embroidered holster is a high quality work of art with an attached shoulder strap. From the style of the pistols, they probably come from the war tribes in the Balkans. Very interesting and unique firearms.
Lot # 21 (Sale Order: 22 of 311)
This US Military M1905 Springfield Bayonet was produced in 1907 by Springfield Armory and is in very good condition with a bright finished blade. It is complete with a WWI era wood and canvas scabbard, showing some damage to the leather tip. A nice bayonet to complete your M1903 rifle!
Lot # 22 (Sale Order: 23 of 311)
These US Navy WWII Mark I Training Rifle Bayonets are hard to find as so many of them were damaged in training. Made of black plastic, they look like the standard M1905 bayonet but did not prove out in use. Too rigid, they could actually injure in training, and too brittle, they often broke. This example shows damage, but is in fair to good condition and is complete with a blue painted USN scabbard.
Lot # 23 (Sale Order: 24 of 311)
A rare and desirable US Military WWII Case production folding Survival Machete in good condition (would be be very good except on bolster plates shows pitting). It has a 10" blade, and is 17" overall. It also has a folding saw blade and a separate rare leather carrying case. This "deluxe" model is hard to find.
Lot # 24 (Sale Order: 25 of 311)
A Colonial produced US Navy WWII Aircrew Survival Knife in fair/good condition, with some light pitting to the exterior and the tip of the saw blade snapped off..
