In Gary Cunningham's book, "American Military Bayonets of the 20th Century, two different models of 1906 scabbard used aluminum. In what Cunningham describes as the scabbard, Model of 1905, 2nd type, he says ". . . .an aluminum insert covers the wood in the aperture." He goes on to describe a "3rd type - experimental" in which he says ". . . .the wood body was replaced with one of drawn aluminum."
