if you can, what was, were, are your favorite?
My favorite Mark IIs? My sentimental favorite is the one I actually carried/used back in the 60's, and which I still have. Though I didn't realize it at the time, it turned out to be one of the rare varieties -- a "screw-pommel" USN Camillus. As a result, I have a really soft spot in my heart (head?) for screw-pommel Mark IIs.
I once stumbled onto a significant bargain, and snapped it up even though I didn't really collect Mark IIs. That was a USMC-marked Robeson Shuredge, the rarest Mark II by far. I got it for $350, and I recently sold it on Frank T's website for $1,200.
As most of you know by now I also favor "oddball" blades. I have a USMC-marked Camillus Mark II with a PAL RH-36 handle. I have a "Case" Mark II, even though Case never made production Mark IIs. (Obviously somebody faked the markings.) The list continues from there...
