The lug mechanism works properly. Overall Condition: The guard and hilt have a rainbow color, we believe the item was heat treated at some point before varnish was applied. There are areas of varnish in some small protected areas, the stocks retain most of the remaining varnish, this can be removed with a thorough cleaning without disturbing the surfaces.There are tooling and bruise marks present on the heat shield, there is pitting on the hilt, pommel and guard, light erosion throughout the surfaces of the blade, which was lightly re-sharpened at some point. The scabbard has its original finish, there are heavier dents that do not hinder insertion or removal of the bayonet. The markings on both items are crisp. Please see our pictures for a better understanding of condition. Be sure to add me to your.
