5/2/18 - This is an original 1943 dated M1 garand bayonet. The bayonet has been cut, as was done by the arsenals during WW2. The blade is excellent and unsharpened, maker stamped AFH with a US flaming bomb and 1943 date. The reverse side is UFH stamped. The handle is also excellent with no cracks or chips. The scabbard is original as well and it looks like someone painted their name on the back with a stencil "STUMPH" (?). Guaranteed all original and authentic.
