    You really never know what will turn up! To be honest, I only ever acquired bayonets to complete my rifles. I never wanted to collect blades. Dress bayonets and dress daggers are something I swore I'd never buy/own just because they don't really interest me. With that being said, I wouldn't turn down something for free!

    They say:

    T59 O

    Can anyone help me figure out what era they're from?

    Hi Joe, these are post war:

    The "RA" (Regular Army) serial number prefix designation was not introduced untill the 50's.

    "T59" would indicate a Tetenus Jab in 1959.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Garbage find of the day! Believe it or not, these two went thru the grinder! I can't find any major damage except that the boxes are dirty and the Silver Star lapel pin is missing a little square of white enamel. The Purple Heart box has a little mold sprouting, Silver Star ribbon is lost to the trash heap

    No names or numbers. Can someone confirm that they were WWII vintage?

    It's rediculous how this works out, because I contacted milmuseum about a trade for a Silver Star and Purple Heart as I needed them for my collection!
