    Doubtful here in Minnesota, but still a possible heirloom brought to the area by the settler.

    I learned recently that the settler was named Gallagher, born 1809 in Ireland.

    Possibly from a WWII era Weimar Police dress bayonet. I'm guessing bayonet because it has the 'classic bend' in it from someone sitting down while wearing it and jamming the end into the floor or ground. As a Civil War reenactor I've seen this (and done this) many, many times...

    I can't find a police scabbard with the decorative lines around it, though. The only chapes with those lines are pre-WWII NSFK daggers and they all seems to have straight tops.

    These are modeled on early Mauser 98 bayonets.
    They told me I should hold on to my dreams.
    So I went back to sleep...

    Sure enough! It has exactly the correct edge on it. But (as I'm sure you are aware) the finial doesn't match.

    Besides... I want mine to be a lot older than that

    It's still a cool piece.
    Funny ..
    I did get my first back in May , it's very similar to yours , I can not recall if its 'strait cut ' it is triangular % has 3 small holes for attachment .

    I was told from my description that it was likely off an Enfield , Scabbard or Chape.

    That said IMO yours is a Chape type tho I see no attachment holes .

    I'm learning as we go like everyone.
    As I am finding , In life we begin having the Blissful happiness & the Wonder & innocence of a Child, then fall Quickly, then spend the rest of our lives trying to reach that point where we began ,through Pleasure , Fame, & Materials but Only 'Through true faith in Jesus , can we find Prefect Happiness or true Meaning in our Short lives on this Beautiful Earth filled with both the Light of Pure goodness & The Darkness of Pure Evil.
