    French M1874 Gras Bayonet Poincons

    Hi All -- I recently bought a French M1874 Gras bayonet, mfg St. Etienne, April 1877, S/N "H99999", and I'm looking for some help identifying proof stamps. Here's a photo of 3 stamps on the crossguard below the quillon:

    1. Top: J in a square punch.
    2. Mid: W (or M) in oval/circle/balloon.
    3. Bot: T (or ?) below a ??? in oval.

    Also on the opposite side of the guard is a V below a star in an oval punch. Any help or assistance is greatly appreciated.

    Many Thanks,
    Barry Miller
