This is a stock image don't know if it's a photo I took from a book or borrowed.
But you should be able to find it so you know this one isn't altered
I found a stamp a while before I seen this image (so I probably got it from Maury)
That there me off, I asked a couple people around me and they laughed and said no
Well instead of giving up I kept trying to figure it out what did I see?
How did it get there? I thought I was loosing it
Well I figured out how to put it together!
Now I don't have 100% details yet but I got enough I think
1901-every officer was issued a gun.
How was the cost and availability of materials?
Mouchon was under pressure to come up with a new design (far as I could tell)
An artist will use any blank space and fill it
Inspired momentarily by anything they may see!
