    Ed,

    I thought it was a neat little piece of DWM history. I appreciate the help in deciphering what exactly it held. Too bad the contents are gone.

    Does anyone have any tips on how to distinguish a real DWM Borchardt Manual from an aged reprint?

    I might use a little 0000 steel wool and some type of CLP very gently on the barrel, but I'd probably leave the rest alone. I think it looks good for an old soldier.
