Larry- Welcome! There is no documented usage history for 533705, but most nearby numbers for which documentation has survived reflect that the were the ramrod bayonet models and in wide use by various volunteer regiments in the Spanish American War. Your rifle may have gone off to war as well, or perhaps was hidden in a crate in a depot or some armory the whole time.
