In the last year I sold off my Arisaka collection at auction. Some of the 6.5's went a lot higher than I thought they would. The defaced MUM on the 6.5's really mean nothing as far as field pickups. Hundreds of thousands of 6.5's came in to the U.S. through other countries that inherited them after the war. The only 6.5's I had that were defaced were 1 or 2 carbines and a couple of remarked trainers or "Low quality" rifles for reserve use only. The field pick ups really did not bring more. I had some with schrapnel damage that went about average price. One that was burned on one side went pretty high, I guess flame thrower damage but I never was sure.
