This is one of the other finds today at the local monthly fair (the first being my Peabody 1874) - a MN 1891 socket bayonet in an Austrian scabbard. It's the one at the bottom, the other being an earlier find. I haven't cleaned it yet, but wanted to share it now as I understand these Austrian scabbards are fairly rare. The third find today was a M-N 1891 in a German scabbard with frog, but the frog is dried and twisted and so I'll wait to see if I can get a better photo of that after treating the frog.

That's true, but the German ersatz scabbards had a small round stud brazed or soldered to the scabbard.

Very nice find Trajan.

Sorry but both scabbards are made in same manner, maybe one without washer, but i dont see it correctly, the austrian frog stud has other shape.
