My wife has a WWII US Bayonet. It has the genuine PAL logo, flaming bomb between the U and S, and 1942 stamped on it. She has been looking at eBay for values.

It appears the value goes way up if the bayonet has never been sharpened. The bottom edge is not perfectly straight, but doesn't carry any obvious stone marks. Is there a definitive way to tell if it's shapened or unsharpened?

Anybody good at determining values on these things?

Pics later.

I've seen a 16 inch go for $300 in good shape. The M1 had three different lenghts...16" was early WW2 and prior, most of the 16's were ground down to 10" which was standard through most of WW2. Afterwards they were again reduced in lenght by the Korean War to about a 7-8" blade. They were originally for the '03 springfield and the Garand was built to take the same attachment lug.
