    I guess it depends on how much someone is willing to pay. Mine was likely
    confiscated from someone by my wife's ex-Police Officer father, who gave
    it to me. Most all of these I've seen are heavily used/worn and IMO not
    worth a lot - after all, they are converted bayonets which are more
    desirable as original and untouched.

    MKI and MKII types are probably $200-$250 by now.........

    Id save my money for one in better condition, but we all collect what we can afford, so this may be a reasonable compromise. Heres an expensive "US" surcharged one,
    Online Catalog-JKROSS-Canadian US M-1905 Ross Rifle Bayonet W/S Exc but look at its condition!

    It's actually in very good shape and somewhat hard to find
    like this. If you are specifically looking for one of these,
    the price is not too bad, IMO. Check a few sites
    - $200 seems to be where most start.........

    I'd like to offer some corrections to the notes on the Ross knives made for William Margolin.

    Total number of bayonets he purchased for conversion: 2,209. (I said 2,207)

    Judging by the frequency with which they are seen, most bayonets converted

    were of the Mark I type.

    The Mark II based knife (illustrated at the top of this thread) is much less common.

    Company that did the conversion: PAL Blade & Tool of Holyoke, Massachusetts.
    (I identified it as PAL Tool and Blade of Holyoak, Mass.) The factory they had established
    in Plattsburgh, New York was originally employed making razor blades.

    Ross Trials bayonets are marked on the crossguard with D broadarrow C
    and 08, not on the ricasso. They also carry a simple broadarrow on the pommel (unlike later production showing the broadarrow inside a C) They were not made for the British, as one Ebay seller has claimed! Why not? Because the British had already rejected the Ross rifle as unsuitable, before these bayonets were ever made.

    At least three Trials bayonets wound up in Margolin's batch for conversion.

    As I mentioned in the original notes, the "sold out of service" mark is composed of double opposing broadarrows inside a C, found on most knives and scabbards, but not all. The early production ( I estimate approximately 500 to 700 examples out of the 2,209) did not receive this mark. Because this mark was stamped AFTER the conversion, authors and collectors have assumed this was an official military service conversion, hence a "trench or fighting knife".
