I came across this link of a supposed Hooked Quillon for sale at a cheap price in France.

http://www.naturabuy.fr/Belle-rare-1907-quillon--item-3007031.html

However I believe it's a fake, but I'm not an expert. I see it has a cleaning hole; which I believe was from 1915 fabrication and if I'm not mistaken, the Hook was stopped in 1913.
Plus there seems to be some shabby filing around the hook area.
Over to the "Experts" for opinions please!

It appears that this seller has 3 hookies for sale. 
The second one appears to be more correct sanderson 1909 manufacture. But not great condition. price is reasonable.
The 3rd one is a wreck. it's cheap, but it should be.
It's nice to be important, but it's more important to be nice!

the clearing hole is wrong - i did not get the link to work but i would be wary , these are not cheap so a great buy is a dead give-a-way its a fake , before you buy know what you are buying , 

and keep in mind that this bayonet as well as those of several other countries are patterned after the japanese T30 style , markings are crucial , far more critical to these as they are in demand , but so many look similar to the uninformed ,
