Default RIA M1905 Bayonet - Is it a Reproduction?

Just picked this one up. I'm still new at this, but at first glance, it seems legit. The logo/font looks to match other RIA bayonets from 1919. It also appears to have been polished (maybe chromed?), as I was also under the impression it should have been parkerized at this date range.

The serial number is way too early from the RIA known serial number databases I've found online. It should have been made in late 1917, but the year stamp indicates 1919.

Any ideas? Is this a fake?

Thank you, in advance.
