Italian Model 1891/38 fixed blade bayonet, with Frog stud fixing.
Thankyou. Do you have any idea on how much it is worth?
Bad question lol, trust me I learned the hard way as a new member but im sure if you google Italian Model 1891/38 fixed blade bayonet, with Frog stud fixing you will find out. Try to find a "sold" example, sometimes the ones still availible are due to over pricing. Good luck
i can only find folding ones on the internet
I feel your pain. I would imagine somewhere in the range of 75-125. Sorry the gap so large, bayonets are my thing!Maybe someone will come along and give a more thorough amount.

The number is the serial number of the short rifle that the bayo was issued with-a means of control to keep track of the bayo.
If it helps you to estimate value, I purchased a similar bayonet in a little worse condition (someone had sharpened it poorly) last year for $20. Granted that prices may vary from region to region, in my area I would expect a collector to pay around $45 to $65 for yours. Italian bayonets are not in high demand like German or US pieces in my experience. Expect a lot less though if you try to sell to a resaler (antique store, pawn shop, or militaria trader) as they have to make a profit as well and therefore will try to get it as cheap as possible.
Best of luck to you,
