Sen, did you dig/find these yourself? The wood handled one is very similar to some of the fake/fantasy bayonets being mfg. over there now. The metal handled is is very odd. Has feature like a French "Daudeteau", but a totally different locking arrangement. Post these on the edged weapon forum, and let the bayonet guys have a crack at them. Interesting.

The first bayonet looks like a good example of insult to injury. It looks like someone tried to 'age' a poor copy of a French M1874 Gras.
The 2nd is legit. Its a pretty scarce bayonet, a French M1890 Gendarmerie. Its interesting that the 2 would be found together.
