"Mystery" Bayonet

As suggested by several folks, we are adding this page to gather what information we can about edged items of unknown origin or backgrounds. We will print what information we do have on them and any theories anyone may have right here on this page. Hit me with your best shot to stimulate the thought process.

A $100.00 REWARD will be paid to anyone who DOCUMENTS the location (street address) of the "AN" marked bayonet makers, owners or partners, year it opened, final disposition of the company, or any other pertinent information leading to their discovery. Current speculation drives us to believe they were M5 bayonets converted to M6 configuration by Anniston Arsenal for the very first M-14 rifles. Anniston marks all of their items "AN", that's where the speculation comes in. They are extremely rare bayonets to encounter.
