Anybody know with any certainty when stamped serial numbers began to appear on M95 bayonets and who was the first country to do so? While most stamped M95 bayos out there have all the hallmarks of inter-war reworks I've owned a few that have no signs of post WW1 refurbishment whatsoever.

I do know that OEWG (Steyr) was stamping serial numbers on the bayonets they made for the M1912 Chilean Mausers - they also came with a crest stamped on the ricasso.
Probably not a lot of help to you though, as they weren't exactly M95 bayonets. They came with the normal positioned cutting edge, not the inverted style.

Cheers, S>S

I believe the stamping on M95 was very early, mainly seen on last second digits, the Karabiner Stutzen version with sights on crosspiece have the full serial number obviously.
