While I cannot comment on the authenticity of this with any experience as they are faked, although it does look OK to me, I can tell you that it is a 1907 bayonet with the hooked quillon still present making it rather rare. The hooked quillons were removed after 1913 I think. Who is the maker?

I just sold one the same! Turned out to have the not so common tear shaped scarbard hanger, oppossed to the round one. Mine I sold for 50 euros.
Is the date 7'09?
Looks pretty genuine to me, I think the N means naval use. The scabbard looks brown and I think I read that the early ones were brown but were stained black later. Also some Aussie scabbards were Brown I believe. The tear shaped ones are the earlier type and button round type are later. Both variations are for sale at WWA.
Nice P1907 hooked, EFD made 1909 probabyl with normal WW1 scabbard, looks ok to me.When bought in similar range so a really steal.Normally they goes in 2xx range.
Looks good to me. Early variant, rather scarce. I agree that N is for Naval, a friend has a N marked SMLE.
