Glad you found what you were looking for. During cleanup today, came across 1 I forgot I had. I have a 1902 without scabbard, 1 side of handle stamped H9, other side 31. I thought maybe, 9th Infantry, company H, but as late as the 9th entered WW1, I doubt they would have been carrying Krag. Taking a 2nd look, invert it, & you get 6th Infantry, co H makes more sense, unit in front of company. The 6th was involved in Cuba & Philippines.
The 6th US Infantry was rolled into 1st Armored Division, would be tempted to send it to their museum, but in looking at their museum, their is no place for a 6th infantry bayonet.
To me this is a historical piece belongs in a museum. The 6th infantry was Rolled into 1st Armored Division Ft Bliss, do they have a place for it?

Well could be I suppose ... M1892 Krag bayonet will fit the M1903 Springfield
won't fit the M1917 though. 

BTW ...the Donor sold on eBay
when planets align...do the deal !
