I'm a bit new with American bayonets. I've found this M1 bayonet for sale and would like some opinions. Sorry about the poor quality photos they are from the seller.
I've done some research and I think its a US WW2 original (not cut down) M1 bayonet with US Korean War era M7 scabbard. Bayonet is marked PAL who I think only made M1s during WW2. Scabbard is marked on throat under lip B-N with scabbard body marked VP over 7 which is making me think Korean war era.
To me the bayonet looks in pretty good condition and is reasonably priced. My concern is that it has been for sale for a while and had no other interest. I'm wondering if I'm missing something in my judgment.
