Hi, mates !

I do have a question regarding the marking upon the pommel of an Poignard U.S.13 Légion Etrangère, (a shortened Pattern 1913 bayonet).

Is the marking:
84PB
73


british, or, french ? ...

Thx. in advance,
R.

P.S.:
BTW, such bayonets/combat "knives" were in use not only in the LE, also, in other french units !

P.P.S.:
It seems, the digit 8 is hallmarked upside down ...
