Title K98 Mauser bayonet
Nationality German
Period c 1939
Sold
 (This item is subject to special postage, click here for more information.)

This bayonet is the classic Third Reich armed forces example, dated 1939 on the scabbard and on the back of the blade, marked for Carl Eickhorn, and with matching numbers to scabbard and blade. This was developed from the S84/98, which first made an appearance in Germany in 1915 as a wooden hilted example.

There is some minor scarring to the surface of the blade, but this has most of its blue finish intact and there are trace elements of original finish to the scabbard and hilt. Grips are bakelite.

testimonials

[From a vendor, rather than a buyer]

I'm delighted that you are happy with the badge and I hope you can sell it to someone who will value owning it.

I tried to sell it on eBay but they won't accept Nazi items. I then contacted several dealers via a Google search who mostly offered me 40-50 after some haggling. Most of the other dealers tried to conceal its true value in their replies and also lacked manners which doesn't inspire confidence.

Ultimately it's about trust. I should think that most prospective sellers have done their own research and therefore know roughly what their item is worth. You were the only dealer who had the integrity to concede that my valuation was approximately correct and I respect your comment that you can't offer this as you need to make a profit. Your honest approach is greatly appreciated and I felt comfortable taking the risk in sending it to you.

Thank you for a smooth transaction
