WWII US M3 Case Trench Knife with Rare M6 Milsco 1943 Leather Sheath. Knife and sheath are an original matched pair, issued to the 517th Parachute Combat team under the 596th Airborne Engineer Corps. Bluing on blade is very clean and the blade lacks gouges that many M3 knives received from the springs in the later M8 plastic sheath.The blade is incredibly sharp and in excellent condition. Leather wrapped handle is also pristine, lacks any oil or signs of wear.
Ordnance stamp on the pommel indicates authenticity.
