Need Help Identifying This Bayonet

Introduction: Need Help Identifying This Bayonet

This item is new to my collection, and I am having a hard time identifying it.  Any thoughts are greatly appreciated.

Overall length is 15"
Blade is 9.75" - 10"

both the weapon and sheath have "61885" stamped on them.  Sheath has an unrecognizable symbol stamped on opposite side of number stamp.

Blade is only sharpened along one edge.

Not a nagant..the early nagant used a spike bayonet.this looks like maybe a Swedish Mauser. Maybe

Only one edge sharpened so probably originally a hunting knife turned into bayonet. Not made in us because of writing. Maybe Asia?

Looks Russian cause of the writing.

It doesn't look like a bayonet but maybe a dagger ether way it is German or Russian

Not on subject .I had a bayonet, it was marked "ARTILLIERTA DE TOLEDO 1899." Since I didn't collect bayonets, I took it apart, put a brass gaurd and a zebra wood handle on it. Holds an edge like tou wouldn't beleve.

I'ts yugoslavian, preduzece 44 was part of the factory "Zastava" that made those bayonettes with the m48 called PAP short for "poluautomatska puška" (semiautomatic rifle) and was build on the pattern of the german K98
