UWK-0067 WWII / Korean War era US M1 Carbine rubber handled bayonet

This item is listed for historical interest only. It is not for sale.
Item #21133

These WWII / Korean War era US M1 Carbine rubber handled bayonets have been the subject of discussion for some time.  These bayonets have been illustrated by M.H. Cole in his book A Collection of US Military Knives printed in 1968.  These are thought to have been original WWII leather handled M1 carbine bayonets which were re-handled due to the leather rotting in the Pacific and re-manufactured in the Philippines with rubber grips.   This bayonet is in overall good + condition with only light rust in spots to the parkerized surface.  There are signs that this had been sharpened then re-parkerized.   These would have been used towards the end of WWII and through the Korean War era.  Additionally the M8A1 original scabbard has been repaired modified to include a metal tip and a leather keeper.  Interesting piece of history.
