Very Nice indeed!
I wonder what the #7597 that is on the scabbard stands for or if it original to the bayonet????
That is a beauty! Thanks for sharing..
I was wondering that myself, Phil..... The "7" is crossed in Euro fashion, but who in the world would be the owner of such a nice bayonet and then go ahead and crudely scratch a reference number into the main body of the sheath and on the Top side of it, no less?? Very strange....but a Very nice bayo in any case!
"Much that once was, is lost. For none now live who remember it."
the numbers appear to be scratched in they do not go deeper then the paint,i myself have wondered why it was not done on the underneath...
Would any one wish to hazard a guess at what the market price for this item would be,the prices on the Internet seem to really vary...
I have been looking and this version appears to be very uncommon...In fact have yet to see one,the stag version seems to be the norm.
