correction to earlier post -  reconditioned "early" wilkinson blade , 
1929 is a refurb date 'rearsenaled' and reissued , 

the second is a sanderson made Pattern 1907 for the no1 rifles , mfgrd in 1918 , refurbed in 1922 ,  scabbard looks to have an early almond shaped frog stud , in keeping with the mfgr date ,blade is original length , it has not been cut down , yes its a keeper ,

that is a makers mark , like an inspection stamp , not sure what the number is specific to , most likely these stampings were assigned to individuals but i am not familiar with the procedures , could as easily have been assigned to an inspection station with multiple operators ,

those markings will generally be on the pommel where the press stud is at the bayonet lug connection channel 

i have a couple with great regimental markings intact but no photos anymore - lost in the photobucket bust years ago ,
