Copper NCO numbers


Recommended Posts

Did they start at one ?  Talking a bout one on FB,

Its number is 1834 matching saya #.

The kicker is it has a screw...evey thing else is spot on. So wondering if number start after 1800s then we can add another flag.

@Shamsy and/or @Stegel would be able to tell you.  I have no reason to believe the 95s started numbers that high.  In fact, I've seen a couple of 3-digit serial numbers and I have a vague memory of a 2-digit one.

 

Here's a link to a comment Steve made about the second screw likely being a wartime repair or re-fit:

 

But I believe I've read from one of those guys some actual serial number ranges the double screw version is seen in.  I'll update if I find it, or hopefully one of the experts will answer soon.

 Number 4 is in the Infantry Museum at Fort Benning.

Mine is blade no. 4177 with no screw.

Saya no. 1530

--------

In the case of that FB sword.

I had the guess that sword had no screw first and was later added? It is made very professional and you see no differences in the patination with niage of the copper.
