Remington stuff (except knives)

The Remington Corporation and the knives that they built have influenced the U.S. cutlery industry more than nearly any other manufacturer. From the time America was settled, to the end of WWI, American knife companies struggled to compete with Britain and German imports, but events that occurred during and after the First World War led to a great change in this phenomenon. Unprecedented opportunities arose, and Remington stepped up to seize the moment. In the process, they created some of today's most prized collectables. In an ironic twist, the next World War played the greatest role in ending the company’s domination of the industry.

Keith this is what I have learned... when I participate heavily in the forum and play with my collection in taking pictures for a “ look see”. I become overwhelmed with the urge to expand my collection even further to my wife’s dismay because she is worried I will spread into another room LOL! So I have to take these sabbaticals to look for the more rare and unique Remington items that requires sometimes more than pocket lent and a few coins. Still watching and really enjoying the Remington show from you and the boys. ::facepalm:: ::paranoid:: ::tu::

The words vintage and antique are vague. Actually most words are vague. Even the word vague is vague.

I picked up this display case. The guy thought it was for ammunition but I'm not so sure. It's for bullet knives now. I'll but a green felt over the foam to make it look better.

I don't know but it's exactly the same as the bigger, 3 row display that I think you have if I remember right.
