    M1 Bayonets
  1. Attached are two more photos of the grips themselves.
  2. I need help in identifying the maker of the grips of am M1 bayonet. I have an M1905E1 bayonet that has a left grip that has a very small trademark molded into the inside face of the grip. The trademark appears to be a triangle with circles inset at the points of the triangle. I have attached a photograph of a drawing I made of the trademark that is enlarged so that you will be able to study the mark. Under the triangle are the letters COGEUI, at least that is what I think they are. Also molded into the grip is what I think is a part number: B8056. I have attached the photo of the drawin
  3. Skiph, Neither the left or right side ricasso have any markings. Also neither ricasso looks as if it has been tampered with, nor does the blade look like it was rewelded. The Parkerizing is a light gray with some staining on it. I can provide additional pictures if anyone wants to see more photos. Also, the grip screw cutout is circular, approximately 18 mm in diameter. I thought OL bayonets did not have circular grip screw cutouts. The 4974 stamping on the guard could be Greek Military. The bayonet did come with a Greek scabbard. Don't know what to make of the MHS or SHW (depending on
  4. I recently purchased an unmarked M1905E1 bayonet from eBay. I thought this forum might like to see some photos and the data I have collected. The overall length of the bayonet is 147/16", the blade is 9 5/8", and the bayonet has a light gray finish. Apparently this bayonet has been in the Greek military system at one time as it has the number 4974 stamped into the left side of the guard. The right side of the guard is stamped MHS. I suppose this could be a previous owner's initials. Both the left ricasso and the right ricasso are unmarked. The guard is stamped OL on the rig
  5. I HAVE AN M2 JUNGLE FIRST AID KIT MANUFACTURED BY ARAKELIAN CO. IN 1945. THIS PARTICULAR JUNGLE KIT DOES NOT HAVE THE TWO EYELETS AT THE BOTTOM. MY QUESTION IS THE LACK OF EYELETS A LATE WAR / POST WAR CHANGE OR IS THIS A MANUFACTURING FLUKE? I CAN PROVIDE PHOTOS IF NEEDED. ANY INFORMATION WILL BE APPRECIATED. THANKS.
