Hello. I recently picked up this bayonet locally. I got it at a reduced price as I pointed out to the seller the handles were not original and there was no scabbard but I've always really liked the look and feel as these. I looked it over closely a couple days later and to my surprise there are marks on the handle SSD(the SS are in rune form). The marks appear very old and faded. I hope they show up OK on the pictures(they are on the top left above the screw next to the pommel). There are no other marks on the bayonet except the original acceptance marks on the spine and makers mark. Has anyone seen another like this? I'm not 100% sure but I don't think these were added by a faker. There was no increase in price, in fact the seller and I did not notice them when I bought it. Also, from what I've seen fakers aren't subtle and usually mark the whole thing up with swas, runes, skulls, etc. Please let me know your thoughts. Thank you.
