Hi Bayonet collectors - This is a public service announcement.

I have noticed not one, but two Australian Machete/Parachutist bayonets for sale in the USA - one on gunbroker auction and one an outright sale on ebay.  Both are priced accordingly.   According to IDS less then 3000 were made.   I have never seen one in person, and have read there are a lot of fakes out there, but these look authentic???

I am always amazed at what Terry has. It's probably easier just to ask what he doesn't have LOL

I agree - his collection is broad!!  Thanks for sharing Terry.
