Thanks! Well done article! Ties it all together. The things we knew, the things we suspected, and some new things too. I will have to go through my collection and pictures and re-examine them. Reclassify and reorganize a few items!? I wish someone with organizational skills would take all the information currently available and combine all of it in a new or upgraded book. I'm old school and appreciate hard copy, but even an online PDF version would be appreciated. Mike

I would love to do that, but with the current job I'm having a hard time making time.
I keep wanting to come through this site and catalog the information into a book.
May do it yet.

6X3 "Square round back!"
Ha!

Pictured there, and what we were debating about whether they are arsenal repairs or original.

Awesome article. Finally we have a conclusion to the "pebbled 6X4" bayonets.
