    I believe either British or Australian, I forget which one. Usually has a frog (leather or canvas belt loop). I have a few of these hanging around.

    That is indeed a British Pattern 1907 bayonet.

    Originally the manufacturer's name would be stamped on the side underneath the large crown/1907 marking.

    The smaller stamps in the other photo are miltary inspection or repair markings.

    E = Enfield.

    The scabbard is not the correct pattern - originally made of leather with metal fittings.

    Hope that gets you started.

    Richie, isn't that scabbard style called the tear drop?

    Yes - some did have a tear drop shaped frog stud - others - (possibly later models but I would have to check) had round ones.
