  1. Nope, sure haven’t. Thanks for sharing.
  2. Looks badass! Nice work, and thanks for sharing.
  3. Thanks for spotting this one for the gang Skip. I have a feeling I won’t be able to afford it though. Price is rising like a Pillsbury Dough Boy Biscuit!
  4. I appreciate all the information you Long time collectors share. I started collecting WWII edged weapons just over a year ago as therapy. I had back surgery in Oct 2018 that ended with pretty severe L5/S1 nerve damage. I was kind of lucky here and there with some nice finds. Lately, as you all have noted, the prices have gotten ridiculous. I doubt Ill be able to acquire an M6 sheath for my blade marked Camillus M3, or the scabbard for my 1917 LF&C trench knife sitting bare on my shelf. I always look forward to the educational posts though. It has been fun...
  5. Your knife was the first issue in WWII that was recalled because the pommel would break off the tang. The next issue was peened I believe. I have the first issue also, and its a badass knife. Enjoy it! ChuckC
  6. I agree, Jeremy. Also, the size of the font for the date is larger than the M3 font.

  8. My 10" M1 dated OL weighs 15.2 oz. I was only trying to point out the similarities on the eBay auction. I stand behind my statement that I think your bayonet is a darn nice reproduction. If someone can prove otherwise, I'll retract my statement. You have been a gentleman communicating with me, and I appreciate it. Best Regards,
  9. And some similar. Just wanted to show the similarities. Best Regards, ChuckC
  10. See the link below for an ebay auction on another reproduction. Also, I added the link to Gary Cunningham's Bayonet Points #23. Scroll down to Markings Used by Oneida, Ltd. Oneida used the 2nd type Shell and Flame, with the flames coming to a point. These are the three different type markings used. https://www.ebay.com/itm/M1-US-MILITARY-OL-US-1943-BAYONET/202792959433?hash=item2f3766fdc9:g:JC0AAOSwmINdl4VO http://www.usmilitaryknives.com/bayo_points_23.htm (credit Frank Trzaska's website)
  11. Here's some 1943 OLs I own. One M1 (Like I mentioned last night the guard is banged up), One M1905,
  12. I agree. I hesitated to say its a reproduction but I actually have 4, one being a 1943 M1905 16, and another M1 10 Uncut dated 1943. All references I checked this morning show the same flat top 3 and no periods. My servers are down and Im unable to post pics until later today but Im pretty confident its a darn good reproduction.
  13. My server is down this morning, but when it comes back up Ill post pics of 3 of my OLs 1 Uncut 10 M1 and 2 Spearpoint (1 was sold recently). Your OL looked so different I decided to do some review. I have questions about your bayonet. The fuller is much different than not only any of mine, but also any other OL on the web other than reproductions. 1943 OL fullers have rounded ends (every single one Ive seen). Also, there should not be periods after U and S, and the font of the 3 in 1943 is different. You may also refer to Bayonet Points 23 for images. I hate to say it but I think your ba
