    Default Interesting WW1 German Bayonet "VIMY RIDGE"

    I picked this up sometime ago. A Dealer I know bought a bunch of lower end Bayonets, this was among them, the area with the wording was very dirty, but he told me he thought he could make out VIMY, it was very hard to see.
    As he knows I collect Vimy Ridge Items he had put it aside for me.

    Well I bought it and cleaned up the area of the wording only.

    I wonder if this was done by a Soldier at sometime, or it was sold, done up this way in France to people going to the Memorial.

    Either way, it is a neat piece.

    Does anyone know what pattern and type of Bayonet this is?
