Lerenis, good luck follows in your wake. Yesterday, I stumbled upon a Hatian-contract M5 bayonet with the correct scabbard for $30 shipped (it's worth $150). You'll recognize the plum-color and see the large numerals the Hatians had Eickhorn put on the blade. There were Hatian M6 bayonets made the same way, which is why I asked whether yours had them.

The bayonet cannot be abolished for the reason, if for no other, that it is the sole and exclusive embodiment of that willpower which, alone, both in war and everyday life, attains its object.—General M. I. Dragomirov
