Early PO7

Opinions on this early PO7 hooked quillion bayonet I'm used to seeing a month and year under the 1907 but am unfamiliar with the early ones.

Enclosed are more pics and some feed back from another forum. Their is no doubt it's the real deal and tough to find in any condition. The GG on the pommel stands for Grenadier Guards.
Having see the markings on the other side, if the price is 'right', I'd go for it. I wouldn't be too put off by the lack of date markings. These were the last thing to be applied to a finished bayonet, and indicated the month and year of manufacture. There could be any number of reasons why they are missing, but all of them speculation.
I think the most important markings are there - pattern date 1907, Monarch crown (missing ER or GR worn or badly struck), makers name, view and inspection stamps as your images show.
