Title Erfurt marked 98/05 Mauser sawback bayonet
Nationality German
Period 1915
Sold
 (This item is subject to special postage, click here for more information.)

This nice example is quite rare as it has the early pattern extended ears on the muzzle ring, together with the metal flashguard on the back of the grip. These bayonets were carried as rank insignia by NCOs and also, more practically, by Pioneer units for clearing wire entanglement posts, etc. It has a nice set of walnut grips.

Most of the original factory blueing remains to the front of the scabbard. There is some corrosion to the top half of the back of the scabbard, which could be improved with a careful hand clean.

If you want to comment on this item—re quality, age, etc—please email me.

Having received the beautiful medal that has been the subject of many recent phone calls, I am absolutely delighted with it. More importantly, the research you provided into the military backgrounds of all those involved made it all the more poignant. Thank you for your highly professional and friendly help and advice throughout the transaction.
