us m4 bayonet
Hey, l just found out tonight that this bayonet I had laying around the house for years may be a WWII weapon. It has the us m4 pal markings and a P like mark in the heel. It is in pretty rough condition since had forgot about it. I now have a renewed interest in it.Could this be restored? And if you guys know anything about it I will appreciate your input.

This is all I could do, sorry. The trooper is for size comparison.

Don't try to restore it until you talk to a real good antique dealer. Sometimes you damage it more try to restore it. That is from a value as a collectible point of view.

I would not restore it. Of course if you never intend to sell it then it's yours and this is America so you can do what you want with it but, I would just rub a tiny bit of linseed oil on the wood and then wipe it all back off after about an hour.
That will prevent the wood from cracking and it is an accepted procedure for antiques.
If you clean up the metal then you will harm the monetary value of the bayonet.

I love it just the way it is. +1 on the linseed soil
