Is this a real Detroit Gasket M3?
Is this a real Detroit Gasket M3?

It looks like the lazy "S" is real but not sure about the color and weave.

Any help would be appreciated.

Looks good to me. A little darker than I normally see. Could be the pic.

Thanks guys.

The color threw me and I wasn't sure about the weave.

I will go ahead and buy it and the fairly decent 1918 RIA M1905 that comes in it.

it appears to have a correct WWI configuration with "walnut grips, Parkerized blade and handle". Rock Island produced "approximately 430,000" bayonets. The Springfield and Rock Island blades were Parkerized 1918 to 1922.

Thanks .I appreciate the help.... I will bookmark that page for future reference.
