Hey Do. , your 88/98 has C.J.E.R.

(. ?  ) . Jaeger Ersatz Infantry Regiment

 

What did you get for the (C) ?

Questionable marking, it could be GJER and the J could be for Infantry not for Jaeger, secondly there are not any Ersatz Jaeger Regiments, only Reserve battalions,and normal Jaeger Regiments in WW1 listed in wiki.by war units are designation much harder as the name could be changed in time.

No one can figure what the C.J.4.46 unit is. I do not know what the C stands for?

Bayonet #14

1/15/21 Friday

 

S.71HF.  Hirschfanger

Alex Coppel, Solingen   1875. (75)

W.D.  561.           WerF  Danzig

 No scabbard, Pressed leather grips in good shape. The steel has med. patina but still good, blade very good, no sharpening. The markings are all nice and crisp. Stamping son pommel are very good and slightly bigger than average. Usually very small. Another Naval piece. As I have said before. The S.71 HF was used by the Navy during great war

Hey AndyB

 

Yes, I see what looks like an “I”, all but scrubbed out.for what you think may be I.W.D.

 But even though the “W” is the deepest strike, both the W and D are nice clear strikes, it makes no sense to stamp I.W.D.  At same time leaving one letter so ghostly faint. The I  (Roman I for #1) must have been from an earlier unit and W.D. For Werft Danzig is correct

This is a bit of a puzzle... The 1877 regulations provide 'Cavallerie, Colonne, Coblenz' for a single 'C', none of which seem to fit this one. E.g., if Colonne, part of the 'Train', there should be some qualifying letter before it to indicate what part of the 'Train' it was, e.g., for munitions, or whatever. My best guess, a weak one, is that somebody mistakely stamped 'C' instead of a 'G' and then tried to correct it to a 'G' by adding a comma-like 'tail'...

Sometimes is hard to deciphere similar units, it could wrong stamped die of number 6, or letter G for Garde?, letter C for unknown reason the lower part of C was twice stamped as not a dot behind the C, evidetnly there was something other stamped on crossguard too in previous. Teoretically could be C for Corps real but is not declared what for number of higher unit.

To WD for Danzig wrote Ruediger as smaller possibility as WD could means a I.Werft Division wout exact marking, the II.WD should be so numbered, the 561 is probably really high for Danzig.
