All my items come from my personal collection that started in the 1960's. The bayonet is in fairly good condition with a few nicks in the tip and some oil stain spots on the 13 7/8 inch long blade. The grips are original and show the most wear. The wood is a little worn down around the screws. There is a small chip in the bottom of the right grip scale.
The push button on the bayonet still has a lot of tension. The blade is the original length and has the blade edge orientation up which is correct. The correct sheath looks to have been sitting outside for a time and has uniform pitting bot not deep. Has been painted black at some point but that shows wear too so not sure when done. Both belt loops are present but the leather belt loop is gone.
There is a shallow dent at top near throat but does not effect the blade going in or out. The throat springs inside are still there, but not tight until the blade is drawn to the end of the fullers. This is an opportunity to own a very rare bayonet. The bayonets were no better than this one but the scabbards were better. PLEASE DO NOT PAY UNTIL INVOICED BY ME.
