All my WWI unit marked Lugers are gone and collection too....used the money to buy a 1931 Model A Ford. Thought I'd rejoined you since I've come across some interesting items putting together scenarios for display when I'm out and about with Sarah, which is what I named her.

The display scenario I've been putting together recently is a US Cavalry NCO, 5th Cav Regt, on border patrol anytime from 1916 to 1935.

I'll post photos a bit later.........

Welcome back, Ed. Fifty+ years ago I would have died for a Model A - built enough models of them.  Of course I was too young to drive, even.

Looking forward to photos.

Hello Michael..........my daughters feel they'll be able to rid them of a Model A inheritance better and faster than a bunch of Lugers.....I have to admit though, Sarah I can enjoy physically and putting her and military collecting together is also enjoyable. Back to researching everything I find.

IrishGunner still around?

Here is my McClellan on the back luggage rack....all items date from 1918-1935. The McClellan was surplus and never issued, 1918 dated, one original strap was missing, all other straps were still rolled up and stapled. Came from Ohio, an Amish saddler had it.

No Chris...not interested in the getting the sword, had the saddle bags but they weren't needed for what I wanted display either. What you see is the finish display what I want to display on the rack. Stirrups I have also but too difficult for them on the saddle and rack also.

I have a complete uniform also for a 1SG, 5th Cav Regt early 30s.
