Default M5 Bayonets

I was drug to a "7 Mile" yard sale today. The wife and kids found a few dishes, clothes, etc. I never really find anything for myself when we do these kinds of things, but today that changed with the last stop. I ran across the M5 on the right in the pictures. She was asking $65, but she took $50 for it.

It's in much better condition than the one I ordered from the CMP a couple years ago. It's the one on the left. The new one came with a different style scabbard.

You can barely make out a "US" on the scabbard.

Scabbard on the right is not the correct scabbard for the M5. That scabbard appears to be for a cut down M1 bayonet. Usually associated with the South Korean shortening mod of the M1 bayonet. Scabbard on left is correct type.

I guess I can always switch them if needed. The new bayonet is in much better condition. The CMP feels like it's been painted in something and has nicks in the blade.
