Default Is this scabbard original?

Hello. What are opinions on whether scabbard is original or repo. Thanks.

The one wide to the left in the first image looks like an original one I have. The one covered in khaki cloth looks like a newly made replica.

I bought a new replica sling a while back (complete with authentic date and manufacture stamps) that would be a close match to what you have for a scabbard.

Probably not. Single seam Marine pattern with army hook and no grommet on the black leather tip.

The duck bill or canvas scabbard looks to be a reproduction. As noted, no brass drain grommet. Also the thread looks like nylon not cotton. The leather tip has uneven edges. The stitching pattern on the belt hanger also does not look right.

Depends how much $ though, the bayonet itself is probably worth $150...
