    Hey Joe,
    Looks good to me and as I said GREAT FIND @ $62 paint or no paint on the scabbard, congrats

    Thanks, Sam! If I can upgrade the scabbard for cheap I will. Otherwise, I'm content.

    Scabbard rivets still look odd to me Joe, they look small and a bit too high, a trait often seen on reproductions.

    Possibly just the pictures or the paint, but you should compare it to a know good example.

    I don't know what to say, John. It seems good to me and I really have no reason to believe the scabbard is a fake. In hand the age to it seems genuine.

    Two more. If the scabbard is no good... Meh, I still feel like I got a good deal.

    Joe, the bayonet alone is easily worth what you paid plus more, especially being dated 1918.

    Sorry, but I'm still not feeling the scabbard.
