3/1/18 - This is an original 1918 Springfield bayonet, which was later reused in WW2 as a M1 Garand / Springfield Rifle bayonet. The scabbard has the US Flaming Bomb. There is some minor wear near the tip of the scabbard, as shown in photos. The grips are in great condition, and are the earlier light brown color. The blade has light bluing loss but no signs of sharpening. One side of the blade is "SA" marked with a 1918 date and flaming bomb proof. The reverse side is marked "US" and "946464". Guaranteed original and authentic.
