Danish Model M62 Garand Bayonet
These bayonets are basically exact copies of the US M5A1 Garand Bayonet and were manufactured sometime during the 1960s.
This particular bayonet was manufactured by HTK (unknown maker) in 1962.
These bayonets are well made. The grips are black plastic; blades are Parkerized.
Scabbards are the M8 style, but unlike the green "plastic" US version, these have a wood-grain pattern and have a stained-wood appearance; sheet-steel
throat displaying a crown over HTK.
