Title KS98 dress bayonet
Nationality German
Period c 1935
Sold
 (This item is subject to special postage, click here for more information.)

This is a Gustav Spitzer Solingen walking out bayonet, modelled on the old Imperial KS98 issue bayonet, but without the sawback feature. These were private purchase bayonets that the soldiers could buy and wear with their walking out uniform. This was not an issue weapon.

The EPNS finish on the hilt is beginning to erode. The excellent blade is just over 24.5cm long and has its original leather washer. The scabbard is an old repaint, not brilliantly executed. This is priced according to condition.

Yes, arrived safe and sound, very nice, and very interesting. Have a couple of friends in the States slavering over the pictures, one of them loves searching old lists, etc. If I can tie it down more definitely will let you know.
