This 98/05 bayonet is in good condition,its marked on the spine for King Ludwig of Bavaria with an 18 datand made by Fichtel and Sachs in Schweinfurt,the scabbard and frog are a bit ratty! the scabbard was made by Mauser in Oberndorf and the frog is so worn the markings on the back are unreadable
sandgrounder, VERY NICE!! Condition like your's & mine are important! I have that same bayonet. It greatly increases the value if you have to sell one day! I had that experience in 1990 when I had to sell all militaria to survive!! Got top dollar for good stuff! I told my wife she'll sell it to a dealer I trust when I part from this earth!! I have all my expenses in writing, she'll know where it all is!!
