    Hello all,

    I received this in a lot of bayonets I purchased. Everything else seems to have a match with the exception of this piece. Can anyone please fill me in on what exactly I have here?

    Any feedback would be greatly appreciated and thanks in advance.

    Us and them - and after all were only ordinary men. Me, and you - God only knows its not what we would choose to do. Forward he cried from the rear, and the front rank died, and the general sat and the lines on the map moved from side to side.

    Hi William, it is an M1905 US Springfield Bayonet and M1910 scabbard. Nice buy. I used to own one many moons ago.

    Cheers, Ade.

    It is a 1894 dated Krag bayonet with an early 1910 scabbard for the M1905 bayonet.

    Hello again,

    So do these actually belong together?

    Thanks for the positive ID. Any clue what it says on it?

    Strictly speaking, it would be regarded as a mismatched set - but the posibility exists that they were used together, perhaps in a NG or reserve unit. The stencil is likely a soldiers name.

    Thanks for that. Just so I am completely understanding, is a Krag bayonet different than a M1905 US Springfield, or are they just different terms for the same thing?

    Sorry for all of the rookie questions, but I'm not too good with US stuff. I truly do appreciate the help and thank you for all of the information thus far.

    The below photo helps illustrate the differences between the M1892 (Krag Bayonet) and the Model of 1905 bayonet. There are some variables and differences in finishes and scabbard design that correlate to year made and if reissued or not, but you should get the basic idea from the photo.

    At any rate, as Adrian said - it's a nice find, congrats.
