WW2 production 16" M1905 bayonet Question
Looking for any information on if there were any WW2 produced 16" bayonets that were NOT dated ? I have seen some that the date was partially obscured by the crosspiece, but what is the likelihood that some had the dates either not stamped at all, or were completely covered up? Also have there been chinese made 16" bayonets with the AFH stamping ?

I had one like this . With a lot of help from a guy that was a Master Welder , his findings was it was a RE-WELD . He also was a collector of WW-II and a avid hunter and shooter . I gave it to him . Bob

Here is one that is listed on ebay, I'm trying to figure out what looks wrong with it? Does this look like a new blade was added? The blade looks almost too sharp and the fuller goes further down the blade than normal? ( M1942 M1905 AFH Flaming Bomb 16” World War II Bayonet & Scabbard NEVER SHARP JSH )
