	Small wonder.  The unit in question appears to have a distinct
lack of wear and no sign of degradation from regular use.  Having worked
with U.S. military hardware (mid 1980s) that was from the Korean conflict
era, I can attest that *nothing* ever came our way that was that pristine. 
This in itself leads me to believe the item up for bid is a replica.

	While of interest, such an item is nowhere near the dollar value
presently at bid.
