Title Pioneer pattern dress bayonet, engraved blade
Nationality German
Period c 1936
Sold
 (This item is subject to special postage, click here for more information.)

This bayonet is fully engraved on one side for the Third Regiment of German Infantry based at Mohrungen in East Prussia and is maker marked for Holler of Solingen. The Pioneer bayonet is the rarest of the dress pattern bayonets and one rarely finds a regimentally marked example.

The scabbard paint has been refurbished to a professional standard without using undercoat, just as the originals were painted. The nickel silver finish of the hilt is showing its age. The blade, however, is in excellent shape with nice clear, deeply etched engraving.

testimonials

My order arrived this morning, thanks for the prompt delivery.

Two excellent original pieces, I must say.

Buckle is in minty condition retaining so much detail esp plummage on eagle's neck and chest, like to see those 'creases' on the legs also... a beautiful example of an early O&C buckle.

Belt is very interesting, rather thin, CROUPON stamped and also behind the tongue...maybe Allegmeine but no SS markings as you state. Beautiful piece none the less.

Thanks for a speedy transaction Chris, I am very happy with my purchase :)
