Have had this in my collection for a few months now and thought I would post some images. It was given to me by a mate who found it in a house he had purchased.
A half reasonable Aerial Cutlery Company (ACC) manufactured third pattern M3 with second pattern f/glass M8 scabbard.
One of the more common makers I believe but in quite good condition. The leather leg tie seems original to the scabbard. As they had such a short production run (March 1943 to August 1944) I think they are a interesting little US edged weapon and I am very happy to have it in my lot.
Not bad for a freebie (thanks Cameron).
Thanks for looking
