There might not be any blood. What does 70 year old blood smell like though?

Choice! I've seen several like that at our local fleamarket. the guy was selling them for $120.
When we cleaned out my grandma's old garage we found 2 hooked machetes, an old fireman's ax, and an old pellet pistol. I've got the pistol and one of the machetes. The pistol is weird, you have to fold the barrel down to load it and it has a wooden grip and sides. It reminds me of an old german pistol.

Cool, I've seen those before, but I can't remember where. Maybe it was at an old army surplus store that used to be near my house, or the flea market.

Don't clean it! Maybe use some very light weight oil to keep any rust off, but don't polish it! You could very easily ruin the value of it just because you want it shiney!

The sticky stuff might be cosmoline or something similar depending on what happened to the bayonet after WWII. If it went into storage they likely coated it in a preservative.

If you watched pawn stars you'd know not to clean it. It looks like an M1 Bayonet. I think it has been shortened but I'm not sure.

Don't clean it! Leave it the way it is. They are worth far more with the natural age and wear and tear.

I've got my grandpa's KaBar from his tour in WWII. Nice knife, sharp like a razer blade.

If you clean it you will end up like the guy who molested his Mauser into a modern rifle

Union Fork and Hoe had a WWII contract. Early in the war they produced 16" bayonets (the same length as the 1903 Springfield bayonet). Later, many of these were cut down to match the newer production bayonets. This is what you have and why the blood groove extends to the tip of the blade. These aren't as collectible as the uncut bayonet, but still should bring at least $120 on up. It will fit on either the M1 Garand or M1903 Series bolt action rifle.

My Dad went in with the 2nd wave on Iwo Jima, he brought back his USMC K-bar but never would talk about it. It still has an edge and original leather sheath. Very cool.

From watching pawn stars...do not clean it until you see an expert. You could damage its value.
