Title Garand bayonet
Nationality American
Period c 1940s
Sold
 (This item is subject to special postage, click here for more information.)

This is the regular production, as opposed to the shortened version of the old bayonet from the Great War. The Garand was the first semi-automatic combat rifle adopted by the US army in the early stages of WW2. The novelty feature of the locking device comes from the Krag Jorgensen Danish system.

The blade is in good shape with all its original finish. US ordnance marks are stamped at the forte, along with maker's initials 'AFH'. The scabbard is marked 'U.S.M7' and is in good shape.

I received the medals safely yesterday and I am very pleased with them.

Picked up the dirk this morning and actually waited until I got back home before unwrapping the package. It really exceeded my expectations...whilst the photos were good, to see and feel it in three dimensions was very exciting. A beatutful piece Chris, and worth the wait.
