Sorry Bruce, this is the only one type 30 I ever saw 

Did a little search on Gunboards and found several bayonets with stamps on the ricasso, and they are all from arsenals!  The Jinsen is in sakura like this Toyokawa.  SO, I guess it really is a stamp from the Toyokawa aresenal.  Seems they used different stamps (circle or sakura) depending upon the item it was going on.

@PNSSHOGUN I thought you might enjoy this little tidbit about the prescribed location of mons 紋 on Type 97s.



A careful read through the 15 items also reveals that, if you wanted to incorporate your family Mon on the sword, the Menuki was where you were allowed to display it, not elsewhere.
