    With no sheath, a nice 1907 should go in the range of 35-45 dollars, perhaps. I wouldn't go any higher, myself. With the scabbard, probably double that. William

    Is it any more special with the Quillon, or is that normal for the earlier bayos?
    Thanks for the help William!

    Nope-many of the older bayonets featured this. But, they are heavy and impressive bayonets, in any case! William

    An original 1907 Pattern with quillon can fetch $750 or more these days. They are very desirable in this form, as many were modified in service, by having their quillons removed.

    Lots of fakes though, and its hard to tell from that photo. It might be OK... there's nothing obviously wrong with it, but it's all in the details of course. Is this something you can get better pics for, or do you need a crash course in 1907 bayonets?

    If you can get it for under 50 bucks, buy the bloody thing anyway

    Ask for some pictures of the markings on the ricasso part of the blade (the bit nearest the hilt, as I'm sure you know). The official change date for quillon removed was 29th October 1913, so it shouldn't be dated after that (for a British weapon - Australia and India manufactured bayonets changed later). The other good point is the oil hole in the pommel, or rather the lack of one - these were introduced in 1916.

    Fakes are often made by cutting off the whole crossguard and brazing on a new hooked one. So its also important to look for brazing or welding marks in that same ricasso area.

    By the way, congratulations on spelling 'quillon' properly
