Here is a bayonet I bought maybe 35 years ago. 
SANDERSON
Has an interesting quirk in that the crown strike tool bounced or the guy was drinking as there is a faint second crown way off up and left. Price I based off eBay so $240 USD unless it doesn’t sell then I’ll lower the price. Please ask for any high resolution photos you want. 
Thanks

With all due respect Richard; I think that price is optimistic for a Sanderson bayonet.
I would expect a standard 1918 Sanderson in good condition to be half that. At least here in Europe it would be. I don't think that U.S.A prices would be much higher; but I could be wrong.
By all means; try it on E-bay; you may get lucky!

My local Gun Store has the same identical bayonet, minus the double strike, complete with scabbard with a price tag of $145.00

did the Sold Search on Ebay (sanderson enfield bayonet)  and found 2 at or close to the price listed, 

keep in mind ebay/managed pay/paypal gets 11%+ of that price, 


and one offered free shipping, 



not trying to rain on your parade,   but you may want to put it on Ebay

So no takers then 😢
Feedback seems to say my price is too high so I’ll lower to $200 for now. 
It’s easier to lower a price than raise. A few months back I sold a rifle I later learned for less than half the market price. 
eBay can be so tedious to sell on, I try to avoid it. Too much work. 

Meanwhile I’ll dig out some other Enfield stuff I have. 
I’ve been thinning down steadily. My “junk mountain” is smaller now.

Please do continue to let us know what you have to sell.
The bayonet will sell; it will be interesting to see what price you get.

yes , please do , but i agree with those that would go 125-150 for a late war sanderson , its not that it is not a fine example , its that they are quite common in the big picture , if it were one of the rarer makers , maybe ,
