type I band, how much is it worth?

Was wondering what a type I mint original barrel band is worth. I have an Underwood, never issued, with screw, etc...

I expect that it would bring somewhere close to $100 on eBay assuming people realized that it was the distinct Underwood weld pattern. It could even go higher. Real bands are getting harder to find.

I've promised it to a board member, but thought it would be a type 2 not a type 1. It is off my mint, unissued Underwood barrel I just bought. Nice barrel, has the anti-corrosion stick still in it, but I am going to part out the band to help with the cost of the barrel.

Not sure if he will still want it as he was looking for a type 2. When did underwood make the switch? The barrel is marked 4-44, with flaming bomb.

They used very few of the type 2 bands. The switch took place around the 6.1 mil mark. Many of the Underwood receivers in that serial number range were purchased by Winchester about mid summer of 44. That barrel date is right on the line for the end of Underwood production and I suspect could have had either type band.

Jimb, did the Underwood type 2 bands used with the 6.1 million Carbines have a particular weld pattern? I have one and I would like to know if the BB is ok. Thanx.

Chuck.

The Underwood Type one band was the only one to use a staggered weld pattern of three welds, the center one being "higher" than the other two. I haven't ever seen an Underwood Type 2 band and don't know of any. I would suspect they integrated some if they used any at all (unmarked)?

Here is a pic of mine. Barrel is being installed, but I took off the band to part out. I cannot find any U markings on it, but the weld pattern is as Wayne says.

Audie, Underwood type 1 bands were unmarked, but they were the only bands that used that particular weld pattern. As far as I know, the type 2s were obtained from Inland and were unmarked.

Ditto, what Jimb wrote for me too.

In the spirit of Jimb and CR who have gotten me parts, I have passed it along to a board member at a nice price.

thanks for the info. It has found a nice home.
