These bayonets were made between 1909 and 1912. Some 170.000 were made.
Argentine sold obsolete M 1909 bayonets with a filed out Argentine Crest to countries like Spain, Bolivia, Peru, Equador, Columbia and El Salvador. It is known that Argentina delivered before M 1879 Remington bayonets with brass fitted black leather scabbards to El Salvador. We do not know which country used this example.
Very interesting bayonet in an Excellent ++ Condition.
