I’ve had these for some time and only getting my house back together after a massive renovation. So have some time and place to look at this stuff again,
First is a 43jwh. Nice carried condition, blade is near perfect with really nice bluing and great machining chatter sort of.

Next is 44sgx. These seem to pop up in either extremely nice unissued condition, or heavily cleaned. At least that’s what I’ve observed over the last 4-5 years. I think this one with genuine carry wear, and no clean up is tougher to find then minty. You can see it has frog wear and just nice carried look. Blade has that used phosphate look some of the rifles get. And interestingly the locking lug area was ground down after phosphate, (ground the phosphate off) but before final acceptance. I may actually like this one more then my unissued one.
Frog is interesting as the rbnr faces the bayonet.
Sorry for the one flyer image, I forgot to photo the code as had to use an older pic.
