I am not a knowledge collector,
But they seem real proud of their toys..

Real Proud...

I have looked for a 1917 Bolo or a U.S.M.C. Chatillon for some time..

Looks like I'll keep looking..

Those are the going rates depending on condition. If you can find for less, please advise.

No argument Bill,, it's just they seem to move up faster than I can find them.. 20 yrs ago, you could find them on ebay for 10-15 USD..

I've got one vintage F/S knife back in the day for pretty cheap to go in the very small collection.

I'd be partial to one of these trench knives:

But that's a pretty big price, and they're not legal to import here.

I guess it's all how you look at it.

Randall knives of WWII or Vietnam vintage can go for some really crazy money that make these look cheap.

Remember the price is just the guesstimate. I bid on the Liberator pistol for half the estimated price. It's where the auction house starts the bidding.
