Ross 1910 Bayonet US marked

Ross 1910 bayonet sharpened in the field to a more defined point, according to orders, to enable the bayonet to penetrate thick Imperial German uniforms and great coats. The left side of the pommel, which normally has dates and Canadian broad arrow acceptance mark is scrubbed clean. The opposite side of the pommel is marked MSP 142, and the normal Ross Rifle Company information. The MSP marking is a bit of a mystery but thought to be Michigan State Police - a security group formed in 1917 after the US declared war on Germany and armed with Ross Rifles, which at that point were withdrawn from service at the front. Wood grips are not US marked but the leather scabbard is marked US and shows signs of the flaming bomb symbol, as well as normal Canadian acceptance marks to be expected. Interesting variant.
