Man-that looks an awful lot like the sticker for my Ljungman.
The Ljungman has a metal "tang" keeper on it.
Dang! I LIKE that picture format!

its interesting in bayonet collecting how many different countries used the same [just different marked] or slightly altered versions of another countries blades , and its equally interesting to see the "modifications" they deemed important , sometimes it was logical to fit the rifle and equally often it was less so to fit the requirements of the "brass" in that given force , 

sometimes the modifications were improvements , often they were financially driven , and it makes it a true quest to find the truth in some cases , 

still did no research on this one , anyone else want to venture a guess ?
