This 1954 US Contract Norwegian Army USGI M1 Bayonet is in good condition but does show expected signs of age and service. The blade's ricasso is clearly stamped with "U. S." and the Ordnance Insignia as well as a "Crown K" stamp to denote production at the Kongsberg Arsenal in Norway. The reverse crossguard is also marked with an inspection stamp. The blade is in very good, clean condition and only shows mild evidence of handling and service. The crossguard exhibits a mild bend near the muzzle ring. The black plastic grips are clean and free from obvious signs of abuse or neglect, but do show light signs of age and wear. The grip screw does not turn freely and shows mild marring. The M7 scabbard is clean, free from any serious cracks or other damage, and appears to be Norwegian made. The "US" logo is very similar to other Norwegian examples and there are no markings from companies like Victory Plastics or Beckwith Manufacturing present where you would expect to find them on standard US produced examples. It is rumored that only 50,000 of these bayonets were made in 1954 and because of this low production figure they have become scarce. This M1 would make a fine addition to any advanced bayonet collection. $400 OBO
