I'm trying to find the value, and interest in, my father's US Naval issue carbine.
•SN -#2001xxx
•Ordnance Wheel with Crossed Cannons R-side stock
•S J in sling well. (Jamestown Lounge Co., Jamestown, NY) Walnut Stock
•Oval sling cut, High Wood covers slide
•“S” stamp on L side of flip sight
All parts are as they were when my Dad brought it back from the south pacific. He was a Naval officer and this was his issue.
Any ideas as to collector's interest?

Condition is a big factor so some photos would be helpful.

Your Standard Products carbine sounds like a real nice one. It would be best if you could post a few pictures of your dads carbine. As said condition is the major setter of the price of the carbine if it's all original and in nice shape you could be in the $1000 to $2000 range. Pictures would really help to pin the value down.

As to condition: It was packed up when my dad left theater and was never used, restored or even cleaned more than a couple of times. So, I don't know how they're supposed to look after all these years.

I'm trying to get pictures, but everything I take seems much too dark and I'm not sure what is most important to photograph. I was a medic (and not a field one, at that) so I need some guidance on what I should photograph. Mostly I don't know how to get the best pics with the worst lighting.

Try to take your photos outside on a sunny day. Take pictures of the whole carbine right side and one of the left. Then try to get close ups of both sides of the rear sight, the serial number area, the barrel band both sides, the acceptance stamp on the right side of the stock and maybe a close up of the markings in the sling well. Those would help for sure.

You need a picture server like photobucket to host your pictures.
