Default M1 & M1905 Bayonet Help

I'm looking to buy a 1943 dated bayonet, either an M1 or an M1905 (16", 10" cut down, or 15.75"). I've seen ones for sale on Ebay, but have seen some that are stated as reproductions. How can you differentiate originals from reproductions?

The OP might want to browse the entire web site. Lots of good info there, and not readily available elsewhere.

Gary Cunningham was highly knowledgeable and willing to help and is missed.

I was going to recommend his book, but the CMP bookstore seems to be out and beware the highly inflated prices on Amazon.
