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.

testimonials

I have in the last six months inherited my late father Alan Swain's police memorabilia collection along with much paperwork receipts etc. I would like to pass on to you my thanks for such good dealership with my father going back to the late 80s and well into the 1990s.

Sword arrived today. Fabulous. This is an excellent example of a fighting sword of its period, and a real gem. The 1828 Pattern is such a gorgeous sword, and this is a fine example. Even my bride is impressed and she doesn’t really get swords.
