Does anyone know this knife ? Answered

My brother just gave me this knife for my B'day. i would like to know where its from. The markings are very worn. It says on the right side of the blade "MO or MC-----" and more, but unreadable. The left says " P----", also unreadable. Here is a picture of both sides too. It looks like a Gurhka style knife. Its 14.5 " OA  and the blade is 9.75 ". Blade is 1/4 " thick. It has a full tang handle too. I thought it was a bayonet but it has no rifle barrel hole on top nor does it have any attachment point. Any help identifying this knife will be deeply appreciated! Thanks, Triumphman

Its a WWI USMC Bolo knife or a copy of one. Without identifiable markings its impossible to say for sure. Most of the authentic USMC Bolos were made by Plumb for several years prior to and during WWI.
