  • Description: U.S. Marine, Medical Corpsman knife. This piece shows a bright excellent blade marked U.S.M.C. Chaillon, NY maker. In addition it shows a scratch marked no 7112908. This piece is mounted with what appears to be a maple wood grip see Coles page 58. In addition this piece shows a crudely retention strap loop welded to the base of the tang. The rear screw was also replaced. This work may have been done in a field or troop ship shop. Modification of some field gear was not uncommon as well as numbering items.
