An auction to be held live and online March 29, 2012 offers a wide array of ‘mantiques’ – from Samari swords to  silver dollars.

World War I trench knife

This rare U.S. Army trench knife was made in 1917 and retains its original L.F. & G, triangle blade. The knife comes with its original metal and leather sheath. It is expected to take top lot honors at Garner Auctioneers' March 29, 2012 sale.

Garner Auctioneers is hosting the sale from its Carrollton, Ohio, headquarters.
The sale has a large amount of Militaria collectibles from both sides of the conflicts that make up World War II.
