Title Ersatz bayonet for Mauser, 1898 model
Nationality German
Period c 1917
Sold
 (This item is subject to special postage, click here for more information.)

These bayonets were made as an economy measure to produce side arms for the rapidly expanding army and also to replace battlefield loss. Single German acceptance stamp to the base of the blade. Scabbard maker's details to the reverse of the scabbard.

This is an average example with some restoration to the paintwork - hard to detect in this case what is old and what new - it's certainly the correct colour.

Bayonet arrived safe and well earlier, finally got a chance to unwrap it and have a quick peek and am very pleased, thanks!
