1918 US Bayonet

I inherited this 1918 bayonet and I believe it is the real deal from WWI. It has a nice patina, is super sharp, and in working condition. The paint on the handle probably destroyed the value, though I should have taken it to Antiques Roadshow when they were in town to confirm. Minimal research says that the date stamp is important, and the other side says US.
