Hello neighbor! Thank you for the welcome Charles! That is pretty cool to know that there are some north Alabama folks here. I lived in East Limestone for about 20 years and spent a lot of time in Athens as you can imagine.
Hey Charles, sure appreciate the kind greeting. I've learned alot from reading various forum posts over the years, but never participated. Enjoyed what I'd been seeing here, and I look forward to being part of the conversation. Take care, Jim
Thanks very much. I confess I am not a collector but a direct descendant of Samuel Bell, and I would like to ask Mark about some of the biographical info he has. This was the only way I could figure out to reach him. I am impressed by the warm welcome I have received!
Also looking for resources on buck fixed blades, I have the date chart and some other info, but specifally have questions about a pre 86 119 with a dangle sheath never seen one and any year info would help.
Charles thank you for making me feel welcome, do you know anyony going to the 2a ralley in dc i could ride with? Could help on expenses and driving. Was a long haul trucker the last 4 years of my working life. Cant afford the trip on my own.
