Hi all. I'm new to the forums. I just recently started collecting knives. my grandfather had a knife that I got after he passed. He was part of the Civilian Conservation Corps I believe back in the 40's. It says "US J.Q.M.D 1945 36" on the waist belt. That is the knife that is in the 1st couple pictures.
The second couple pictures are of a bayonet I found in a giant antique warehouse. I bought it for $20. it has a significant amount of rust on it. I was told it was from the vietnam era, and went to an m16. After doing some research, I found that it is an M7 model. Is that correct? basically, I'd like to know values on these knives, and if i got a good deal on the bayonet. thanks! PS: The bayonet has too much rust to show any markings.
