    Nice rifle! I'm still on the hunt for an IHC (of any variety).

    Thanks, I'm still pumped about getting it for a fair price. Most of the IHC's I've seen were priced such that I was convinced the internals were gold-plated!

    Thanks - did you go to the Wanenmacher show? I saw two other IHC's, both postage stamps. I don't recall the prices though, as I found this gap letter first, and that's all I had on my mind all weekend. Talk about biting one's nails: "Is it still there? Is he willing to negotiate?" :wink2:

    It's not a rifle, but figured someone might appreciate photos of the latest Garand related item that I picked up. I ran across the trading card in the photos below on an online auction. It was produced in 1939 by O-Pee-Chee as a part of the Fighting Forces series. It looks like there was also an American release of this same series of cards under The World in Arms title by GUM Inc. There's not much information out there about these cards, but I did find the following description on another auction site that had a partial set listed: "Scarce 1939 V276 O-Pee-Chee "Fighting Forces". While the fronts resemble Gum Incorporated's R173 "World In Arms" edition, a review of the backs reveals this selection is something very special. The title and clearly Printed in Canada" copy uncovers this 48-card set made for the Canadian market. Single examples rarely appear for sale resulting in assembling a complete set extremely difficult."

    Notice that the rifles on the card are the early gas traps with slant cut op rods, flush nut sights, and grooved lower bands.

    Got a CMP M! this year and love it after I got it all cleaned up. Need one of those M-14's in a bad way now.
