Looks like a French M1866 Chasepot bayonet, but I'm sure others will have more info/be able to positively ID it.

It's a Yataghan type Bayonet for sure, but what country, several counties used them, check out the GOOGLY search page for them.

Any marking on it? Check the Ricasso, and on or near the mouth of the scabbard too.

Yes it is appears to be a French one to me also! Not worth anywhere near $125 dollars I wouldn't pay $45 dollars for it. Even matching examples (by that I mean scabbard and bayonet numbers) are bringing about $110 in near mint condition. Ones of this condition are worth about $30 bucks honestly and even at that not worth the time. One of those things that so many of them survived market value is VERY low!
