Remembered Today:

German Bayonet?


Recommended Posts

Trying to figure out what time period this is from cause all of the others that look like this have completely different markings so I’m not sure if it is even from Germany or not. If someone could help me out it would be great! Thank you!

Manufactured 1907? (07) I would have thought.

It certainly looks like a  German M 1898 neuer Art (with two piece grip)

Real experts will be along shortly!

I was kinda thinking that just cause that’s the closest one it looks like but thanks for the insight!

Your bayo is a typ called 1898 n/A (n.A.) which was a 1902 change wood grips from one piece (U-shaped) on two pieces of wood. Produced until 1914.

To print the last numer 37 the armorer make a mistake in printing a reversed 3. He cancel it by a diagonal 0. A rather scarce vay

Hi.

You sure is that Landwehr? Can be Landsturm or not?

Good question from U Kalicha..

I have no acces for the moment to my documentation but it seems that Landsturm was organised in bataillons. If i well  remember, the L for Landsturm is an italic L.
