I picked these up separately the other day. I'd like to have a correct bayonet and scabbard to go with a 1943 M-1 Garand I recently purchased from the CMP.
I don't really collect edged weapons, so my knowledge is very limited. Because of the fuller or "blood groove" going all the way to the point, it's my guess that this is a 1905 E1, an original 1905 bayonet that was cut down during the War from 16" to 10".
I know UC stands for Utica Cutlery, but I'm curious what the "392" on the other side of the blade might mean? It seems like it was done at a later time, but that's just a guess.
I'd also like to determine if the scabbard is the right one for this bayonet. To me, it seems to be a M3 scabbard that was shortened to be a M7. It's missing the angled cuts at the top of the body where it attaches to the throat and the way the throat is crimped to hold the body in place.
Let me know if I have my details right and if I'm missing something. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
