I believe that I now have the complete set of the different variants of bayonets for the No4Mk1. From top to bottom. 
No4Mk1 Cruciform 
No4MkII Spike
No7MkI/L 
No9MkI POF
No9MkI South Africa

Nice collection! I'm almost there too now with my collection having recently discovered in a box of bayonets a No9Mk1 w/scabbard I had stored for God knows how long. I only need the No7Mk1/L to complete the collection.

you are missing two i can confirm - 

no 4 , mkII* spike - this one is the mkII that had the spike welded on instead of full formed , i have one listed with the scabbard 

no 4 , mkIII spike - this one is a welded up version that is really rough in appearance - i have one listed with the scabbard 

let me know if you want mine , i have another item ive been wanting you to have as well ,

Goosic, what scabbards do you have for the No4 bayonets? There a few different types!

The only thing I know with any amount of certainty is that the Cruciform bayonet has the th original No4Mk1 scabbard and the South African No9MkI has its original scabbard.  The scabbard for the No7MkI/L is supposed to be the original but looks too good for that and the scabbard for the Pakistan made No9MkI appears to be original but the blade will not index correctly into it and only goes in the wrong way.  I tried the other scabbard and the same thing happens.

For the spike bayonets there's also a tubular sheet metal scabbard and also a bakelite type which was US manufacture I think.

You cunning devil, you!
Upgraded the phone, or just got the existing one figured out?

you have incoming tubular metal and bakelite , just for the record , there is also a US made victory plastic scabbard that came it two versions for the spike , 

your scabbards for the no 9 & no 7 look correct to me , the bottom one however is one that ive not seen and i suspect of foreign mfgr - looks like a german made frog stud to me , is that the SA? it might make sense ,

Yes it is the S.A. No9.
The scabbard is the South African M1 variant of the Belgium FAL type A
