A friend from another forum took pity on me when I posted my 1941 Lithgow No1 MkIII, and sent me a 1907 bayonet, sans scabbard. It does fit, of course, but not a match in age - looks very out of place when attached. An overnight oil soak and a brass brush took a heavy rusted crust away, but left the patina intact. 21-3/4" overall length, 17" blade, and the last 3" of the tip have been ground, though the edge is long ago dulled.

Stamped 3-18 (I think?)
A quick search of the forum shows this Wilkinson to be the most abundant, but it's OK. I found a couple of scabbards online, $50-75. Ouch. Not quite ready for that. But what I would like to do, is to find a Lee Enfield that does match in age and patina. Suggestions for maker and years always welcome.
Thanks for looking.
