Arisaka (sp?) for a Jap 7.7mm

Isn't that a mid 20th century Spanish military issue?(Spanish as in Spain)

My fancy drawing is what is shown at the base of the blade, on the lug end #'s "0372"

Looks like a Type 38 Arisaka. Don't know for sure, though, because of the looped lower guard. CB

If it's an Arisaka I guess around $70 with scabbard. Does it have a flower (is it a chrysanthemum?) stamped in the blade? Edited because I don't know how to spell chrysanthemum.

Jap type 30 bayonet. This was the primary bayonet for their rifles. The mark with the circle is a Nagoya mark, and the triangle is some subcontractor mark. The two together indicate that it was produced by the subcontractor but supervised by Nagoya staff. No, I don't know this stuff by heart, it's here: [URL]http://www.radix.net/~bbrown/japanese_markings.html[/URL]

I'd say less than $50 considering the condition (pitting/forge marks). Of course, the obvious wartime manufacture might actually increase the value. OTOH, I have a pre-war manufacture 'straight shank' Arisaka bayonet with 99% blue that I've been offered $250 for. Is that a good deal? BTW, it's my understanding that bayonets did not get the 'royal' chrysanthemum treatment. Halfcocked, you weren't even sure of the spelling of Arisaka, for goodness sake. 5 minute reporting penalty. I claim the prize!! :-) CB
