Thanks for the input RC, I believe he has the Springfield mount on it.

I'm looking at a Springfield M1A Bush rifle tomorrow that has one on it.
They were made by the Japanese company, Hakko who made the Colt Scopes back in the day. The SA/Hakko's are OK. Better then you're Chinese made stuff but not as good as the German glass.

Thanks Jeffy, I'm not looking to set any records, just trying to get an idea
if it was worth anything.

I thought December 7th 1941 was the last time but maybe it doesn't count since it was only a US Territory not a State.

I'm thinking there's a quantifiable difference between an attack and an invasion.

True, they did not occupy any US land during the attack, therefore, they did not invade.

An Embassy is considered Property, soil, of the country it represents, So an American Embassy in Iran is US ground.
