Today's news :

https://uk.reuters.com/article/uk-britain-coin/rare-edward-viii-coin-bought-for-million-pounds-idUKKBN1ZG1E8

LONDON (Reuters) - A rare 1937 Edward VIII sovereign coin has been bought by a private collector for 1 million pounds, making it the most expensive British coin ever.
The coin was one of six prepared by the Royal Mint when Edward became king in 1936 and was due to be mass produced for general circulation from Jan. 1 1937.
But he abdicated in December 1936 - quitting his job as king - to marry American divorcee Wallis Simpson, meaning that production was cancelled and coinage with his face on never entered circulation.

B.S.A. Redditch, Hereford & Worchester.
It should have No7MkI/L on the blade near the hilt. L for Land Service. 
What looks like wood is resin impregnated cloth, Paxolin. Only 20,000 of these were made by B.S.A..

That "wood" is the resin impregnated fabric stuff, "Paxolin" a bit like P38 Hairgrips. (I think).

You should try collecting and restoring late 40's early 50's L.M. Cox Champion and Cameron Brothers Engineering tether cars. The fun part is when you've finished rebuilding the engine and it starts up on the first pull and that 30% nitromethane smell hits you.

Thanks for posting pic's, Shamu. Again! The fellow is shipping it today. As it's in the same province, I suspect I'll receive it next week. Have no idea what I'm going to do with it. Leave it as is? Clean it up?

Also, I do have a picture of the blade. Obvious carbon steel patina, a spot or two of rust... price was a little more than I wanted to spend as I need a bayonet like a hole in the head.

I try not to over do it when I get something like that. Blow the lint & dust out with a compressor oil liberally & wipe down with an oily rag so it doesn't rust out is about it.

As far as that one goes HT,I'd leave alone. Clean it as far as removing any surface rust from the blade. It is a nice looking piece...

Goosic. I've used xxxx steel wool and WD40 to remove surface rust of rifle barrels before. Do you think that's to aggressive?

#0000 steel wool is my best friend. I use it with Hoppes #9 solvent.

I got both! Cool. I ended up paying $225. CDN (he pays for shipping) so I'm not out a whole bunch for my first ever (and hopefully last!) Bayonet!
