A friend of mine who's an antique dealer came up with some items from a local estate. Among them is a long dress bayonet by ACS with a single etch. I'm posting some pics hoping to get some idea as to whether it's the real deal or not. Here are some pics.

Thanks,
Len

Textbook Alcoso generic etch, not a swaz to be found either. Very nice looking early pattern bakelite & early Alcoso mark. No problems that I can see at all.

It is perfectly fine IMHO Len. A very nice example.
