Faked Out?

Thanks to Conservative UAW Guy and Mauser*Girl. I'm surprised that the bayonet is possibly fake. I know that people want to collect Nazi era items, but it seems funny that someone would fake one and put no Nazi markings on it. I always thought that this was something my dad kept when he was discharged from the army in the fifties. Maybe it was for a Garand or 03 Springfield.

Well, the search goes on. I cleaned the bayo up as much as I could and still found no serial numbers. Guess there's no way to really know if it's real or fake. Can't check against serial number lists. Oh, well.

You could always take it to a gun show and ask a dealer who has a lot of Mauser bayonets. Someone will know...
