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

An uncommon (in 35 years of dealing, I have only seen three or four) version of the standard dress bayonet, with combat type pommel, brown dress frog, NCO's knot, but no quillon. Maker marked to: E.&F. Horster.

The nickel silver finish is in good order, both on hilt and blade, except for a small patch of rust and minor lifting to the plating on the guard. All original paintwork to the scabbard.

testimonials

Picked up the dirk this morning and actually waited until I got back home before unwrapping the package. It really exceeded my expectations...whilst the photos were good, to see and feel it in three dimensions was very exciting. A beatutful piece Chris, and worth the wait.
