    Very likely an authentic piece, but in that corroded condition any marks will likely have been lost. Spike bayonets are not widely faked in my experience as generally they sell for moderate prices. It can be a laborious process to identify as there are numerous types with only slight variation.

    Thank you for the reply. So is the patina a pretty good indicator that its real? Does this look like a Prussian made bayonet? I know Potsdam musket bayonets lacked a mortise and the locking notch on this bayonet looks right for a Potsdam bayonet.
