Military items are not really my area of expertise and pretty much all of the information about this piece was taken from the internet. I will also add personal observations about the piece.... This is a WWII M1905 WT (Wilde Tool), bayonet and scabbard made for the M1 Garand rifle...... Please look closely at the photos. This piece is in excellent condition. It is only my opinion, but I believe the piece is either new old stock / unissued or has been refinished somehow. You collectors will know for sure... The blade has a matte / parkerized finish. Blade is very sharp. I do not see any problems with the blade other than very light scabbard wear. Blade is marked on one side WT US 1943. There is also and ordinance "flaming bomb" mark.....Blade measures 16" long from hand guard to point....... The hand guard is marked WT along the inside top edge..... Push button behind guard works perfectly and moves the locking / unlocking devices at both ends of the handle.... Handles are some type of hard plastic and are dark brown in color with darker colored centers. There are some small spots of dirt inside some of the ribs of the handle. Handles are in excellent condition, No cracks or splits...... The metal piece on the end of the handle has darkened slightly, possibly rust, please see photos.... Entire piece measures outside of scabbard 20 1/2" long.... Scabbard has a matte green finish and, again, in my opinion, is either new old stock / unissued or has been painted or something...The metal top is also matte green and the attaching hooks are matte green as well. The backside edge is marked B 3 0 N, please see last photo... Scabbard is in excellent condition, I see no problems. The bayonet snaps perfectly into place..... Bayonet and scabbard together measure 21 3/4" long.... When I purchased this piece is had about 40 years of dust on one side of it. I cleaned it off and found what you see. I believe it to be an excellent example of a rather scarce bayonet. Happy to answer questions. Absolutely guaranteed old and authentic........
