REFERENCE: RARE FINNISH BAYONETS (NOT FROM MY COLLECTION)
Standard bayonets given as retirement gift or competition prizes, partially or totally chromed..
Comp prizes that I have seen are usually standard (but mint condition) bayonets on a plaque.
This M28 was give as retirement gift to captain Vainikkala, commanding officer of Jyväskylä Suojeluvarikko (prev. Asevarikko 2) in years 1970-
(Coll. Tuomo Järvinen)
My chromed M28-
My chromed M39 has light handles and brown scabbard, so it is not a later modification but made this way.
