Re: K ration value

Modern value for a K ration in very good- excellent is $250. But a near perfect skyrockets to $3-400.

Re: Korean War B-3 Unit 1955 Date Code

The cookie has a very good chance of still being good - actually all of it does! No jam - and that is good. The jam corrodes and will burst over time - poisoning the rest of the contents and making it smell likes copper and rot. So yours is a great score. If it is one of those "Mother's" c...

Re: Russian RPMK 6 Man Ration unboxing

What an awesome score- nice work to Sniper for finding this one for Shawker - and thanks so much much Shawk for sharing it with us! I love the fixed blade P-38 style can openers. And the dried kasha blocks seem pretty hardy.

Re: IRMA hurricane threat - anybody affected?
