Carved wooden officer's box.

Remember to look for the little "elephant in the circle" stamp - on the Greener/Pritchard bayonet, so you don't accidentally buy an aged IMA India-made bayonet by mistake.

Nice revolver~!

Nice trio -
Mine are all marked as either: MP44, MP43, 1001.
I guess those three are the most common designation to find.

Stuntman looks like Paul Wxxxxx - (x'd for discretion)
Know a few of the stunt guys on that one.

I'd say take it for what it's worth - unlikely the jacket you're buying was used in the movie.

Perhaps a Belgian or Spanish copy - they did some wonderful work, some not so.
A Belgian may have a proof hidden away on the cylinder or beneath the barrel.
