    Default No4 MkII* bayonet question

    Hi mates.Today i received my No4 MkII bayonet made by VNS(Viners Ltd Sheffield) and scabbard made by S.286 (Vanden Plas (Eng) 1923 Ltd). I noticed that at the one side the letter N has gone.I think from the time.Also under the number 0 there is a small line.Is this normal or i should worry about that.(Sorry but i cant post pictures,'cause my camera cant focus to the markings.Many thanks for your time and help

    No, it's nothing to worry about, some did have a line under the small 'o' in the No.4 MKII* marking.

    I've added a pic of one of mine.

    Once again I'd say it was nothing to worry about - I don't have a VNS one to compare with but it's not something that would really bother me if the marking was there.
    No4 MKII & MKII* spikes are still so plentiful and cheap 'n' cheerful that I can't imagine anyone faking 'em for a few years yet, the No4 MKI is a different matter though!
    So I'd say it's just fine so go and enjoy it!

    Ok then.I didn't thought that is a fake.I was thought for a mis-stamp.Somethink last.As i wrote before only one line of the letter N.Is it possible that has faded?Thanks again

    Highly possible it's worn away over the years - I have some where the markings are all but invisible.

    Yeh, you can do that sometimes - I've a Savage one a bit like that, if you just look at it you can hardly make anything out but catch the light right and you can see the markings...just!

    I think I have a couple No.4 Mk.II /II* Bayonets that seemed to have never been marked? Considering the amount of machine marks still left on them, not sure if the markings would even be able to be seen?

    Thanks mates,I have a query though.Do you know when the spike's bayonet production finished(I think 1945 with the end of war).Thanks
