    Good afternoon! I wanted to buy an American bayonet. The seller listed it as an American civil war period. But I have my doubts - the brands look like new ones. Tell me-is it original or fake? Photos so far only such.

    Same opinion in late 70ies Frankonia ordered small bunch of civil war era bayonets, that was done for reenactments, someone probably added the stamp on guard. b.r.Andy

    Question on the inscription "US property" - from what period can you find this form? And were they on bayonets?

    I dont known who added it there, anyway is new font and was made per single dies letters, so in reality certainly problematic, secondly the serial number looks like k suffix, which i doubt ever would be made so many similar bayonets, when i am correct is Ames type bayonet, or small bunch of civil war modells. thirdly the locking nut on handle is cylindrical, maybe rotated? but in that position could be the bayonet not attached on rifle as the rifle adapter slot would be not free. The cast of handle is rough i assume this were ordered per Frankonia, but that real piece never went there as the bayonets in Frankonia were polished and filed on surface, so probably remains of undelivered. note the second picture lower handle part.

    Yes, I also noticed the mount-I assumed it was a late replacement. But all these signs is the inscription, rough handle, no number on the back of the handle, no year of release on the blade, and the blade non - standard- indicate that bayonet is not original. I have noticed that a considerable number of bayonets have recently appeared under the guise of American ones-during the Civil war-without brands.
