In 1943 the government adopted a shorter bayonet for the M1 Garand and in addition to newly made bayonets older M1905 and M1942 bayonets were modified and designated the M1905E1. This one shows an SA/ Ordnance Bomb and 1906 date indicating it was made at Springfield Armory. No secondary company marking for the modification is present, so it was likely modified at Springfield as well. The M1942 plastic grips were substituted for the 1905 wood ones, and the blade was shortened and given a spearpoint tip. The shortening is evidenced by the fuller running clear across the tip.

The older dark, blued finish of the blade was retained and is very good, with just some minor sharpening marks and some light pitting at the ricasso. The grips show minor wear, with no cracks or large chips, just a little rust on the recessed screwhead on the reverse and a very few tiny scrapes in the plastic. Pommel and crossguard show smooth metal and good color, though with a small area of standing rust on obverse of the muzzle ring. The scabbard is the correct M7 (briefly termed the M3A1) and is in very good shape.  [sr]
