This S98 I did post on, a Landstrum unit, but no one knew what the markings in the middle were? 

Lst. B  F---a (?) 2  R 64

with steel scabbard

 

Nice bayonets. There's a similar marked s98nA in Roy Williams German Bayonets Part 1 on page 372. It's marked Lst. B. Frbg. 3R 175. Since the bayonet is Saxon I'm guessing this is Landsturm Battalion Freiburg. Can you post a photo of the date/cypher of the 4.G.G marked s98aA bayonet? The one posted next to the 4.G.G is of the Lst marked bayonet.

Hi Steve, the spine photo above the 4.G.G pic is of the Lst marked bayonet.

 

If you zoom in you can read Lst on the side, it also has nA type grips, but the bayonet in the pic below it has aA grips.

Sorry guys, I had deleted so many pic's. , bad quality, some of my pic's remaining got mixed up. 

 

One pic, I put with wrong bayonet.

On last page of this post (19) I show an early S98aA with bayonet/scabbard 

4.G.G.7.80.   And 4.G.R.9.16

the pic of the spine with Saxon and 05' date is for the other bayonet, Landstrum unit with steel scabbard, .  I called the seller, but not too long ago, he checked and tells me the date on that early piece (trial's?) 4.G.G.7.80 is dated 

99', sorry for the confusion there

Hello

I am kinda new to this but I think I understand kinda how these markings work. But if there is someone out there that could confirm what I think it would be great..sorry if this is a stupid question but I gotta learn somehow. Thank you for taking the time to read this. Oh I also have 4 other bayonets I need help with figuring them out so if this post gets a response I will post the others. I think they are all very nice and in good condition to. Again thank u

Hi Boomstick, and as I tell my students, no such thing as a stupid question!

 

That first one is 'B.K.15'? right? On a S.98? Looks to me as possibly Bezirks Kommando waffe 15. So a regional command weapon - but these usually / should - I think - have an initial or a number after the 'K' to indicate where... Needs some thought...

 

The scabbard is no problem - 108 Regiment, company 12, weapon 217. The 108th was the Kgl. Sächs. Schützen (Füsilier)-Regiment Prinz Georg Nr. 108

 

We are always happy to see marked bayonets here so post away!

Who can recognize this "flower" mark from an Mauser 98/05 bayonet?

Hello and welcome!

 

A new one to me!

 

Some makers do have odd extra stamps on crossguards, etc., but I haven't seen this one before, on the choil of a bayonet.

This S98 was brought in to a local show I was at, and I was lucky enough to be able to purchase it fresh from the attic so to speak. 112th Regiment.

Oh how lovely! A VERY nice find! Matching scabbard also!!! 4. Badisches Infanterie-Regiment Prinz Wilhelm Nr. 112 - but I guess you know that! What's the date? Is it '08'? That would, I think, make it a late one for Baden. So probably '06'? And ERFURT or P.D.LUNESCHLOSS?

Ah, sorry, forgot to post maker's mark but it is Erfurt. The dare appears to have been a bit poorly stamped so a little hard to see with the naked eye but I had thought it was 06.

 

Yes, I thought it was the 4. Badisches, but good to have it confirmed. Apparently part of the 29th Division who were active throughout the invasion of France, Somme, Verdun and the 100 Days.

06 and Erfurt fit nicely with other ones issued to that unit. As I said, a nice one... Nah, I am not jealous... Just - shall we say? - envious!
