Default Garand mk1 training bayonet value??

What is the approximate value of a 16" training bayonet for the garand? I think it is a usn mk1. Blade is plastic,excellent,shows little to no use.

Those were made for the USN Paris-Dunn 03 training rifles.I have seen minty ones advertised as high as $300.

All those M1905 bayonet scabbards you see marked USN Mk1 were for these bayonets.The Navy bought around 300,000 of them during WW2.

I was offered one with the ring broke off for $125 and passed on it.The minty undamaged ones are harder to find,that ring is the weak point on them.
