Happy Sgt York Day !!!

I loved the movie and have probably watched it about a dozen times over the years.

FWI

Ms Gracie in real life looked closer to the actress playing his mother in the movie.

Also, if they were worn by an entire division, I would think they would be more common than they are. In my 50 years of collecting I have pulled many, many M16s out of attics, b...

I would say normally the M-95 brass would be about $100-$150 more than the grey metal M-15 .


The m-15 grey metal is probably the most abundant pickelhaube out there.
