    Well i ve never seen a camoed scabbard before, i suppose its possible, if it didnt move , it got painted, as for the Chassuer, you say you have a smaller one , is it exactly the same , does it have an arched blade and writing on the flat portion of the blade, ie the top spine of the blade, there should be a date as well, some had "Etienne" etched into the spine

    No Pammy its not the same, look at the point where the rifle slots through yours has no securing bolt whereas the one in the photo has, plus it looks like your one has a straight blade judging by the scabbard

    The bayonet is French as Davejb says, not South American like yours, Pammy.

    The one with the painted scabbard is a Krag from early 1900's or late 1800's,
    and the paint is obviously modern. There is also a US Navy Mk 1 knife
    in the grey scabbard, likely 'PAL' maker, as they made thousands,
    and also a US M5 bayonet with the black plastic grips.

    I see too there is a box of pocket/folding knives - who knows what gems
    or trash could be in there, but some look like they may be very good !

    The binoculars can not really be seen in this photograph, they could be
    modern. As you said, check them for military markings.

    The French bayonet may be worth around $100, and the US Navy knife
    is about the same, but the blades must be in good condition.

    Hope you can get them.....................!

    I like the look of those pocket knives, if anything pick them up! From here I can see maybe an Ulster, or an Imperial or Colonial. If you buy them, I can probably ID them for you.
