Korean War Period Australian Owen MK I Bayonet and Scabbard. Bayo 179 - Bayo 179
This is a virtually mint Owen MK 1 bayonet with a parkerised 10" blade with 5" fullers. It was made at Lithgow in 1953 and is stamped to the Lithgow Factory on the ricasso "MA 53". The other side of the ricasso is stamped with the War Department 'Broad Arrow' acceptance mark and the date "54" for acceptance into stores. The slab wood grips carry the correct mark of "Slaz 52". The scabbard is the correct brown leather with steel locket and chape. This is a very nice Korean War period Owen S.M.G. bayonet and Scabbard. (see Skennerton's book, item A13, pages 278 and 279). The price includes UK delivery. Bayo 179
