Default Mint cut OL

I got around to cleaning my OLs and found this gem. Didn't really notice it when they came. I usually just pull the blade check the date/scabbard then back in the box until I get time to clean them. Anyway this OL really looks unused. I don't want to say unissued because I don't know that for sure. It was modified by AFH and is bowie cut and ALL CORRECT with no numbers on the hilt ect. Faint cross cannons and is unsharpened too. Even the spring,screw and release look NOS.

Any bayo experts out here to give their professional opinion would be nice.

Yowza that is one nice bayo. That's the one I was hoping to get. They sent me a spear point cut OL in black park. Can't complain though.

I received a very nice modified OL as well, but yours is better still. Just curious, per the attached thread from the USMF, does yours have an ordnance bomb on the underside (or topside) of the blade?

Yes it does. Look at the 3rd post,3rd pic, to the left on the guard. I didn't notice it until I posted the pic here.

I don't think so. I can't see how the original park could look that good after the cutting process.

Parkerizing comparisson photo. The 1942 OL from this thread is on top with black park but it doesn't look like the greek black and a 1943 OL bottom with grey park.
