wonder why they are bidding so high on a bayonet without a scabbard?

especially from a seller with such low feedbacks? :blink:

It may be a case of the seller requesting a friend to entice bidding by running up the bids - giving the illusion to prospective bidders that there may be something special about it due to the number of bids.

I asked the seller how the bayonet was found and if he could tell me some history about how he aquired it? and he said:

It was from a fallen Iraqi soldier. It was taken off his AK-47. That is all
I can say sir.

I'd have no reason to doubt his statement but I could take one of my Romanian Type I bayonets, drag it around in the dirt and rocks a bit, and give the same story. For good or bad, a story is just a story. For some that are uber collectors and probably have never been deployed, I suppose it's a big deal to have the story. But without provenance, they are what they are.
