WW2 AUSTRALIAN MA 1907 BAYONET XOA ENFIELD 9 42 SCABBARD OA MANGROVITE NO RESERV:
This is a WW2 Australian bayonet for the Enfield rifle. The bayonet is marked on one side XOA under an arrow, on the blade, and the letter c over the serial no. 74512 on the handle. On the other side the blade is marked, MA 1907 1 and dated 9 42. On the wooden part of the handle it is stamped AUSTRALIA. The bayonet is in very good used condition. It retains alot of the black on the blade. Very nice patina on the wood handle. There is no rust on the blade, but there is a small amount on the handle near the spring loaded locking catch. Possibly very light pitting there. The loading catch works good. The blade has a few very small nicks on the edge. They don't show in the picture. It looks as if it has had light sharpening. It is 21 3/4 inches long overall, with the blade being 17 inches of that. The scabbard is marked on one side twice on the metal OA. On the other side it is marked MANGROVITE 43 or 45 on the leather. Hard to read it for sure. It has alot of the original black on the metal. There is light rust and there is scratching around the button that hangs the scabbard. Obvious signs of use. The black leather is in good condition showing numerous wear and tear scratches.The stitching and staples are tight.
I bought this bayonet on my senior high school trip. We went to Washington DC in 1971. I bought this at an Army surplus store that was downtown. There was a large pile of these bayonets and scabbards there at that store. Some in very rough condition. I sorted through all of the bayonets and scabbards and married the best bayonet, and the best scabbard. That's what I bought, and that's what is for sale in this sale.
