I've got a Smith Victory model. Was given it by an (Old... in years we've been friends and in age) friend of mine after I sat with him for some days following a bad car wreck, and helped him following that. he gave it to me because I refused money, and he knew my weakness. (We did WW2 renactments when I was in High School) and he knew I could not say no. He gave me this particular one Because it is Marked USMC on the back strap. I'm not talking on the top strap above the cylinder where some are marked "Property of US Gov" or "US Navy" (I am Medically retired from the Corps) Nether of us have seen another marked in this manner (Although We have seen some with similar Navy markings) My buddy (Who is very knowledgable... as in the D Day Museum has had him do things for them) says it is believed to be 'unit markings' I am pretty sure it is not faked, because he bought about a dozen of them back in the 60's or 70's (Still has them all) when they were nothing special and were ~$50 each. (No value to faking them) Was just wondering if anyone had any info... Not worried about price, because I will never sell. Just wondering about history.
