Title Mauser K98/05 sawback bayonet
Nationality German
Period 1912
 (This item is subject to special postage, click here for more information.)

Marked on the crossguard and top scabbard mount: 'B.E.B.1' (Bavarian Railway Battalion). Bavarian inspection stamps to both sides of the throat on the top scabbard mount. Blade marked 'O' (for Otto) and dated 1911. The marks are matching on the hilt and scabbard, except for the individual weapon number (ie the unit is the same).

Good leather scabbard with no appreciable shrinkage; good walnut grips; minor age patination to hilt and scabbard mounts; blade excellent with evidence of competent field service sharpening. Scarce to find Bavarian pioneer bayonet with railway markings.

The parcel has arrived - at the time you indicated.

The sword lives up to expectations and looks even better than on the website. The detail and etching is superb.

Thanks so much for your help and the extra information.
