14631 S98 Quillback bayonet. P.D. LUNESCHLOSS SOLINGEN SEE LISTING IN THE UNIDENTIFIED SECTION AT THE END OF THE LAST PAGE OF BAYONETS
14805 S71/84 bayonet with scabbard. Odd variation with shorter fuller and no Imperial markings at all. The ricasso is marked "M88" over "OBERND" over "G". The scabbard is an all steel type similar to the Imperial S84/98 scabbard but with a different throatpiec. Grips are retained with dome headed rivets in washers. Blade has been ground on and the frogstud is missing from the scabbard. The backstrap of the tang is pitted and the grips are warped out from it. (see pic).

15105 PRUSSIAN S71/84 bayonet with MATCHING scabbard. WEYERSBERG, KIRSCHBAUM & CO. SOLINGEN. W88 spine mark. Both crossguard and scabbard are unit marked 21.R.5.19.

No rust or pitting BUT the left side of the blade was badly ground then poorly buffed leaving lots of chatter marks. The tip of the blade had 30mm bobbed off and repointed. The grips have been varnished and the locking catch assy. is missing.
15181 BAVARIAN S98/05aA bayonet with scabbard. FICHTEL & SACHS SCHWEINFURT with L17 spine mark. Low ears on crossguard. '17 seems a bit late for an aA to me but there it sits in front of me.
15276 S98/05nA bayonet. SIMSON & CO. SUHL W16
15288 PRUSSIAN S71/84 bayonet. Maker mark and inspectors marks on the pommel
have been removed. W88 spine mark and inspection mark on the crossguard remain
intact. Blade remains unsharpened and has a few isolated pitts that show up
black in the pictures. Grips remain tight but have some wear and gouges around
the rivets and on the right side near the pommel. The number 89 or 68 is carved
into the left grip.
15293 S71/84 Dress bayonet. FUNCTIONAL and in poor condition with badly
sharpened blade and flaking plating.
12745 S98/05nA bayonet with scabbard. FICHTEL & SACHS SCHWEINFURT with BAVARIAN L17 spine mark. Bayonet was blued and screwbolts were slotted but no "1920" was added to the crossguard. Scabbard is missing the throat screw. Scabbard also has crossed out former NAVY UNIT MARK "S.B. 10274." The face of the scabbard throat and the butt of the pommel also have 2 digit rack numbers added which I suspect are also Naval but they do not match. Blade remains unsharpened and free of rust or pitting. Hilt has a few rust spots, some pitts and nicks on the pommel. Scabbard rusty with some pitting and generally battered with numerous shallow dents. This one has definitely been around the block more than once.

but most of the stitching is popped on the back strap. the stitching holding the
pocket in place is solid. Leather remains supple.
14622 S84/98 bayonet with DUAL YEAR/FACTORY MISMATCHED scabbard. NEAR MINT. Bayonet is marked 43asw with sn 6517u. Scabbard is marked 44asw with sn 6567u. SINGLE WaA518 on pommel. Finish is wonderfully crude late war 1943-1944 transitional production. Red bakelite grips retained with typical screws in split nuts. The 43/44 bayonet and scabbard combinations are hard enough to find but the mis-struck 3rd digit in the serial numbers is just fantastic. Note that I am saying this IS a matching set that was misnumbered at the factory.
14720 S84/98 leather frog. Carter's number 311. Dark brown leather, probably Luftwaffe, with 2 slots cutout in the face of the frog for a retention strap but the strap was either removed or never added. 4 aluminum rivets at the weak points but one is a bubba replacement using a pop rivet. Marked on the back "5.3" in a box over "1" There is some popped stitching but the seams remain solid and leather is pliable and sturdy with no crazing.

13742 No.4 MkII spike bayonet with scabbard SINGER MANUFACTURING
13753 STEN MKII Bayonet with scabbard and frog. B&J.S.L. on the spring. GUARANTEED FAKE. Frog is a later green one but dated 1945. Graham Priest identified these as high quality fakes in his book "Spirit of the Pike". It truly is a remarkable reproduction and I was fooled when I bought it from a seller who readily identified it as a fake. Despite that, I still thought it was genuine until I fixed it on a STEN MkII SMG and found it ill fitting compared to bona fide genuine examples I have on hand. The "tell" when mounting it is that the real ones lock up tight and these fakes rattle up and down the barrel a few millimeters. This is not one of the current production fakes which can be spotted a mile away by their flat finger guard. Great piece for a re-enactor or someone interested in documenting fakes.
13767 P1907 bayonet with scabbard. HOOK QUILLON Wilkinson 3/09. Pommel marked S.L. over R454. Blade it really rough having been badly pitted. Hilt is better but the right grip is pretty beaten up.

13853 P1913 bayonet with scabbard and leather frog. REMINGTON 2/16. Retaining loop on frog is broken. Scabbard is a former US M1917 with hooks removed and has been coated with a black varnish-like substance on the leather. The tip fitting still has the US "GF" in an oval mark.
13961 No.4 MkIII bayonet with scabbard.
14247 No.5 Jungle carbine bayonet with scabbard WSC. Arsenal rehabbed with new slab side (later type) grips. Black painted hilt and scabbard and frost finished blade. Looks brand new and is so nice I really had to compare it hard to the others in my collection because I was afraid it might be a fake. Rest assured it is genuine. (Special THANKS to Bill Porter who has added that these were FTRed in the 1970s for use on Sterling SMGs)

15117 P1858 Marine Artillery Sword bayonet. According to Skennerton BCB163 Very much like other P1856 type bayonets these can be differentiated by the larger than normal MRID of 21mm (actual measured example was 21.3mm) Originally designated P1858 the nomenclature was changed to the noun nomenclature "MARINE ARTILLERY SWORD BAYONET" Skennerton's description of these is a bit murky but he alludes to the modified pommel without stating what the actual modification was.
