    Cool Need help in identifying a number of WWI/Later Bayonets from Estate

    Planning on selling a large lot of WWI / WWII and later bayonets - Seeking information



    Desperately need some help in identifying a quantity of older bayonets. I'm trying to help a buddy who is engaged in estimating a number of bayonets for a deceased friend's estate. There's about 35 - 40 bayonets from various eras and makers. Most are in VG to EX condition, and come with scabbards. The very few I recognize are some M6 and M4 bayonets, and a beautiful 1917 Remington 16" with scabbard. I'm not certain on this one, but I believe it to be original and in top notch condition.

    I'd be very grateful for any info, including rough estimates as to value if anyone can help. Unfortunately, I've posted some "group" photos and would be happy to email photos of the bayonets and provide marking info on specific ones if you're interested.

    Finally, for any collectors out there, these will all be sold, and given the situation, will likely go for some very favorable prices. Might be an opportunity for some folks to score some great deals.

    In any event, I want to those who took the time to consider this request for their time.

    The one on the left In A is an Argentineicon short sword, not a bayonet. Agree with twh on the rest.

    Thank you!
    Recently, I posted on several forums seeking information on a collection of bayonets that were part of an estate, I was assisting with. Being unfamiliar with just about everything other than WWII U.S. bayonets, I was in need of your support in identifying and evaluating these blades. The hope was to find a single buyer, at a price that would be attractive, to take the whole bunch. After some discussion with the executor, I had decided to sell them individually, as a number of you had expressed interest in many of these bayonets. At that point, however, one gentleman came through with an offer for the entire lot which the executor accepted. This indecision may have caused some confusion on the part of any interested parties. For this, and my delay in getting back to you all with this information, I apologize to anyone who was inconvenienced by all this.

    I want to thank all of you who helped me gather the information I needed, and assisted with my education regarding these items. I never cease to be amazed by the wealth of information and experience the forum members have, and even more, their willingness to share it with, and assist others. Please accept my thanks for all your help.

    Regards,
