I bought this bayonet at a flea market and i cannot identify the markings. I know it is a Springfield but the blade has corrosion around the markings . I can make out the U S markings with the flaming bomb between the letters. The only other pictures i can find have the U S markings on the opposite side of the blade. There are some more markings but they are too damaged to make out. If anyone knows of similar markings on this bayonet maybe i can find out the year of manufacture. the spine of the handle has an H stamped between the plastic handles.

I believe you have in your possession a US Model 1905/42 Springfield bayonet.
