This bayonet is in good shape considering its age. T is some surface rust - see photos. She has a silver-alloy handle. Email any questions, but as I said, this bayonet is in good considering it's age. From hilt to point she measures about 25 1/8 inches. Own an authentic piece of military history. Shipping and handling is a flat $8.00 to anyw in the continental US via priority mail and actual cost for foreign buyers.
