Second Pile of M9 Bayonets Numbers 4, 5 and 6


Recommended Posts

Continuing from my prior post of a few minutes ago:

I bought a pile of M9 knives pretty reasonably priced and am probably going to put them on my table at the next militaria show here in Arizona in May. I think some of them are commemorative pieces, some are civilian and a few are actual military issue. I think I'd like to keep one and wanted to get some input as to what I have here. Like I said, I got into them very reasonably priced so don't be afraid to tell me if some are absolute drek. If I get more than $20 a piece I am coming out ahead so no worries there.

The second three are in this post.

#4 is marked M9 Lan-Cay USA on side of the matte silver blade. Has an 82nd AB SSI insignia on other side. Pommel is marked Lan-Cay. Reverse of plastic sheath has packing material around it so I do not know of marked. No stone. Commemorative piece?

#5 is marked M9 Lan-Cay USA on side of black blade, no marks on pommel. Plastic sheath marked Lan-Cay on reverse, no stone.

#6 is marked M9 Lan-Cay USA on side of black blade, pommel marked LAN-CAY. Tan plastic sheath marked Lan-Cay on reverse, no stone.

Always looking for Purple Hearts issued to New York men or any WWI Purple Hearts for 27th Division and 77th Division men.

Hil,

No. 4 is a commercial piece, but I have heard of Airborne troops buying these as a memento.

No. 5 looks like a US contract piece.

No. 6 is one of the colored series of commercial M9s. Some guys try to collect all the colors.
