THIS is the key to this gun's real value. It undoubtedly has an historic and sentimental/honorary connection to Co. Fancher. Who was he? How did he serve during WWII? And what were his achievements to warrant this presentation gun? The answers constitute the real story.

Otherwise, it's just a very nice, pristine Belgian double. And there's nothing wrong with that either...
Have not been able to locate much info on Col Fancher. Any ideas or web sites to try?
