1 antique Prototype/variation scabbard for the U.S. World War 2 Case V-42 stiletto.  This issued Prototype Case V-42 long sheath would make an exceptionally rare addition in any collection.

The rare WW2 scabbard smells just like the items in my grandpa's WW2 foot locker.  The leg tie-down thongs has minor crazing.  Note that there is a narrow rub mark above the scabbard throat where a V-42's guard rubbed against the leather. 

Note the characteristic rolled seam on the back side of the sheath at the top just under a vet signature. 

The V42 knife was used by the First Special Service Force.  Frank Trzaska notes in his article "The Case V-42 Stiletto" which appeared in the April 1998 edition of KnifeWorld, that "The U.S. Special Forces (Green Berets) use the V-42 in their Distinctive Insignia, their Unit Crest and in their shoulder patch."  The Case V-42 is a coveted and classic U.S. fighting knife.

This early issued Prototype scabbard is ID'd on the back to 'Sgt. Stan Bradford'. 

This exceedingly rare WW2 Prototype Case V-42 scabbard is in exceptional condition.
