Looks like a bayonet for an 1861 Springfield or P-53 Enfield rifle musket. civil War era stuff.

Looking here it sure looks like a Lorenz. Maybe we need some better pictures showing the locking mechanism more clearly if you say it's not.

You've got me on that one. I'm still thinking Lorenz but I can't find any with an s cut. Maybe Russian, they used some four sided ones..

At least one Spanish Remington Rolling Block used a quadrangular bayonet as well, but those proofs look German or Prussian to me.
