I know as a collector that most anything that has the Colt name on it commands a premium of sorts. However, in one's opinion here, is an Imperial M7 with the Colt logo on the blade worth $202.50? Also, this is without the crinkle finish M8A1 Scabbard. :o

 

I have wanted both the Imperial and Milpar Colt's for my collection, but apparently their value has escalated recently.

yeah prices are crazy now...about 8 months ago..there were two colt M7s and Imperial and a Milpar...I misspelled bayonet and searched ebay for "M7 Bayonett" and they both came up thought I was going to get em for 40$ each..then I left for a day..came back and someone had the same Idea...

blows but I guess you can't win em all...He probably resold them and made 200$ profit....

How can you tell it's an IMPERIAL bayonet with a COLT stamp?

LAW 38
Think As You Like But Behave Like Others

If you make a show of going against the times, flaunting your unconventional ideas and unorthodox ways, people will think that you only want attention and that you look down upon them. They will find a way to punish you for making them feel inferior. It is far safer to blend in and nurture the common touch. Share your originality only with tolerant friends and those who are sure to appreciate your uniqueness.

Easy. MilPar put their name on the guard, Imperial did not. This particular bayo had no name stamped on it. Also, it did not say W-Germany below the logo on the blade so that eliminates Eickhorn.

There were FIVE different M-7 Bayos with COLT logo trademarks on blade: 1st marked "Colt's - 62082 ArmaLite Hartford Conn. U.S.A Patents Pending" has one piece molded GREEN plastic handle. 2nd blade marked: "COLT'S PT FA MFG. CO. HARTFORD CT USA" (1st & 2nd made in 1961 & 1962). 3rd: "Colt's 62316 HARTFORD CONN USA, & marked underside of crossguard "US M7 MILPAR". 4th: (made by Eickhorn) "Colt's 2316 HARTFORD CONN USA MADE IN W-GERMANY". 5th: (made by Imperial with underside of crossguard marked "US M7") "Colt's 62316 HARTFORD CONN.
