Default SVT 40 Bayonet

Here I have a SVT 40 bayonet for review. The blade looks in great condition but I'm concerned if the blade has been polished. The seller is asking for $200. Please let me know what you think and if it all looks authentic. Thank you so much for your help!

Most probably a later issue item possibly from Tula, using the images at hand I think that it may have been postwar refinished. The blade then polished to remove blueing to imitate the original bayonets. The lighting possibly giving a wrong impression - some better quality photos taken in outside natural could help make a better basis for an evaluation. FP

Thank you for your help! Looks clearly different from my other SVT 40 bayonet that looks like it had some war time use with some blood stains on the leather.

The first bayonet is indeed from Tula but the second one made in Izhevsk.
