RJay is correct. Unlike many previous wars, American GI's are prohibited from bringing home "war trophies" captured from the enemy, since most of those are automatic weapons. So the "boys in the bazaar" have been turning out souvenirs, handguns and rifles/muskets, by the thousands to unload on the GI's as real, honest to gosh, antique, valuable, old time, flintlocks, and legal to take or ship home. Guaranteed worth thousands of dollars, sah, guaranteed! See mark right there says 14th century, sah!
