    Have a good look at the photograph where the boys is wearing the knife.
    In fact it is a short bayonet: look at the upper part, the "head", where a
    sort of "eye" is visible. Hardly visible, but it is! I do not know the word for
    it, but such an eye is also present in a regular bayonet!

    So, what the boy in fact is wearing, is in no way a knife as shown with various
    posts by Joe. These knives do not have the "eye"!!

    I agree this photo could be of a boy scout for all we know,no arm band no shoulder boards no insignia on cap,can't see the belt buckle but I would wager that it is not HJ

    I would advise to wait, because we all know what happens to fantasy daggers over time.... 2 examples:

    Robert Iqbals HJ dagger with diamond on the scabbard was $750.- until it was discussed on WAF, now it went down to $500.-
    Gottliebs fantasy birdheads was 69,995.- in December, until it was discussed at WAF, now it has gone down by 20,000.- and costs only $49,995.-

    So wait, and you can surely buy one of these rarities for $0,99.- BUT BEWARE, after the USA militaria Mafia have all died, and that will be within the next 10 years, all this rare and wonderful stuff will become "questionable" because there will be no one to give it a Vet story, a thumbs up or other reasons why its Guaranteed Authentic...

    This forum should be called HJ Mythbusters.

    I don't think the weapon shown in the pic is a bayonet.

    It wouldn't make sense for a young kid to wear such an item.

    To me, it looks like the knife, with a large quillon.

    However, if we can get a better quality scan, we may be able to confirm.

    I doubt very much there is any engraving!

    Have to be the most expensive I've seen!

    You'd have to be a soft touch to pay that sort of money for something so clearly questionable.

    These also remind me of the SS combat bayonets with blade inscriptions and etchings on the pommel - they are extremely well done also, and are known fantasy items.
