For auction is a Camillus "factory error".

During the 1990s Camillus Cutlery, having found some left over blade blanks, reissued the M3 knife and M4 bayonet that they had made during WW2. These were sold to collectors or reenactors.

The M3 can be easily told due to the use of a single pin holding the butt to the tang, while WW2 production used two pins. The M4 is more difficult to tell, but t are some differences.

The item for auction is a factory error in that they used the guard from the M4 bayonet, and is so marked, but used the solid butt from the M3.

Condition is quite good, with just some light scabbard wear. Blade is factory sharpened with the typical "line of white".

This would make an interesting item for the Camillus collector.

It is in the correct sheath as issued with them by Camillus and is so marked.
