He had a full history of where it was carried, who carried it and number of confirmed kills with it. I can't imagine how they came up with that however. ANyway he grabbed it for 450.00. Most of the ones i see now are 5-6.
I got no paperwork, but according to the serial number it's a real No.5 made in the Faz plant in 1946.
