My latest bayonet is this German 84/98 made by Gottlieb Hammesfahr and dated for 1917.
It has a few questions to answer so I'm hoping the Forum members can help please!
When it arrived it was lightly coated in some sort of lacquer most of which I removed with my finger nails...some still remains!
Its obviously been refurbished at some stage after WW1?..by the Germans or another country?? (not sure of the grips are original or the grip screws,last image shows this blade on the bottom and a Reichswehr modified on top...similar grips screws but different sizes)
The blueing has me foxed...its similar to the British 1907 bayonet blueing....pommel,cross guard and 20mm up the ricasso...I thought Reichswehr "modified" bayonets were blued all over....the press stud is not slotted,the flash guard looks original.
