    Unfortunately the pics are too small to be seen, but from the
    link it does look like a good one. Someone has engraved
    their Social Security number in the grip area, if this
    does not bother you.

    It could be that the blade has been coated or painted,
    but the pics are very dark.........
    Regards,

    Tuff call from these pics but I can add that the soldiers engraving is not a WW2 service no. I believe SSN (Social Security Number) came about in 1969, here a real and fake

    Bingo on the SS number versus service number.

    looks to me like it maybe a late war issue,perhaps even just after the war
