Steve the high ears on 98/05 aA bayonets made this way originally. 

There was never a cut away on muzzle rings for German imperial bayonets for 98/05 bayonet.

The model of 98/05 is a lighter version of 98/02 bayonet and pfm 71/98 prior.

Look at the muzzle on those models.it is originally a"high ear" muzzle ring.

My collection is coming shortly to an end.

I have and 35 bayonets ersatz and 98/05 but without any unit markings.

Those I am not photographing as they are not something important. Regards.D.

A plain aA bayonet 98/05 nickel plated (for use as a dress bayonet???).

Unit marking = 14.A.F.II.8.H.17

After ww1 veterans nickel platEd their bayonets in service, for use as dress bayonets (usually this practice was from the wounded veterans).

The existence of unit marking is a proof for this practice.

Manufacturer= ERFURT

Cannot see the date. Probably the date is 1911 as there is a capital "F" on the spine of the Crossguard (see photos) and according similar markings in other 98/05 bayonets
