15055 M5A1 bayonet with scabbard. EICKHORN HAITIAN CONTRACT. Hilt and scabbard throat have rusty and pitted areas. Blade is OK. Oddly the frog on the scabbard is a US military frog as opposed to the German made type.

HUNGARY (ALSO SEE AUSTRO-HUNGARIAN EMPIRE)
12110 M1895 Carbine bayonet with scabbard and frog. Sight blade intact. FGGY ricasso marking with Hungarian Crest on both ricasso and frog hook on scabbard. There is no readable manufacturer's mark on the frog hook and the frog is also unmarked. The scabbard retains 90% of the original field green paint. Blade improperly sharpened with a grinder. It's not trashed but not great either.

12652 P1907 bayonet with scabbard and frog. RFI 4/41 ORIGINAL FULL LENGTH EXCELLENT CONDITION. Very few of these were produced in 1941 before production was changed to the shorter MkII and MkIII bayonets. Most of the full length P1907s were cut down and designated MkI**. Only a handful of these remained intact like this one. Correct M/44 marked scabbard. The frog is suspect as it's unmarked, like new and has some white thread in the stitching.
13520 P1907 bayonet with scabbard. RFI 4/41 ORIGINAL FULL LENGTH. Very few of these were produced in 1941 before production was changed to the shorter MkII and MkIII bayonets. Most of the full length P1907s were cut down and designated MkI**. Only a handful of these remained intact like this one.
13859 P1907 bayonet with scabbard. RFI 4/41 ORIGINAL FULL LENGTH. Very few of these were produced in 1941 before production was changed to the shorter MkII and MkIII bayonets. Most of the full length P1907s were cut down and designated MkI**. Only a handful of these remained intact like this one.
14223 MkII bayonet. Standard P1907 style hilt with 12" long unfullered blade with no false edge. Unusual INCORRECT MkI* ricasso mark. RFI 10/42. Many of the Short India Pattern bayonet have incorrect ricasso marks but they are usually MkIII types with the square pommel. This one is really odd to me.
14433 P1907 bayonet SCABBARD ONLY. Indian made full length for the uncut early WWII RFI made P1907 bayonets. Roughed out black leather body is marked JBB 1942 and the Round stud top fitting is marked "EB" in a circle on its face. There is a small cut in the edge of the body 1/3 of the way down from the throat that is visible in the pics. The internal throatpiece is retained by being staked in like the more common M/44 marked examples. Note this is NOT an M/44 marked scabbard.
14507 MkIII* bayonet with scabbard. RFI 1/45. Ricasso has the originally forged in MkII nomenclature updated by adding the third "I" and the "*". Most never received the corrected nomenclature markings and having the "*" added is pretty unusual.
14772 L1A4 bayonet. Identical to the British L1A3 but with WOOD grips. This is NOT the early British L1A1 bayonet. RFI ricasso marking has been removed and the blade refinished. This is not bubba work but is arsenal correct. Indian inspector's marks remain intact on the right ricasso and right side of the pommel.
14906 MkIII* bayonet with scabbard. RFI 8/45. Nomenclature on ricasso is actually MkIII (Purpose stamped, not updated) but lacks the *
14907 MkIII* bayonet with scabbard. RFI 5/44. Nomenclature on ricasso is actually MkII and was never updated.
14990 MkIII* bayonet. Ricasso is typically mismarked as "MKII".
15015 P1907 bayonet with scabbard. RFI 9/40. Blade has the earlier bead blasted finish with blued hilt. Bayonet has a mild peppering of rust specks scattered about with a few pitts here and there. Scabbard is a re-used WWI example with almond frogstud dated 1916. The fittings were pained green. The tip of the scabbard is badly damaged. (see picture).
14704 FN24/49 SHORT bayonet with scabbard. This is the fullered blade, single edged FN49 bayonet with shorter blade than the Venezuelan type and are reportedly only for the Indonesian FN49 contract. The catch button is very stiff but does function with some effort. Scabbard dented on the edges but function is not inhibited. Blade remains unsharpened. Right grip chipped, left grip split but both grips remain tight and solid. Butt of the pommel has been stippled which is probably why the catch is stiff. The serial number on the butt is obscured by the stippling but is something like 01010.
14825 SP-2&3 bayonet with scabbard and frog. 3 screw hilt with checkered composite black grips. Rare long hilted version of the SP-1 bayonet for the Indonesian made copy of the BM59 rifle. The SP-2 and SP-3 had different muzzle brakes grenade launchers that required the longer hilt. The leather frog is marked on the front with an Indonesian star above "AD".

14249 Mle. 1874 Gras bayonet with scabbard CONVERTED FOR GEW1888. Backstrap of pommel shaved and locking catch has the extension. Spine markings were removed. POOR condition but functional. Blade is badly pitted and just about relic condition. Hilt has rust with mild pitting as does the scabbard. Cap on the release button is missing. Butt of pommel has been slightly hammered but function is not affected. I initially misidentified this as an Imperial German Ersatz conversion and would like to thank David Hughes, President of the Society Of American Bayonet Collectors http://bayonetcollectors.org/ for correcting my ID. The shape of the catch extension differentiates this Irish conversion form the German ones.

13984 M1938 folding bayonet with belt loop scabbard. 2nd model bayonet. Pot metal throat scabbard. Blade is crusty looking with some rust and pitts and almost no finish left. Scabbard and hilt are in much better condition so I believe the blade was swapped out with another bayonet at some point.

14852 Lebanese G3 bayonet with scabbard and integral frog. Nomenlature unknown.
14988 M24L bayonet with scabbard and frog. FN made copy of the long Czech VZ23 bayonet but the scabbard differs from the Czech style being closer to the FN1924 with a different throat arrangement more like an Imperial German S84/98 or Polish WZ24 scabbard.

15003 SET OF 2 RARE BAYONETS! The first is a Luxembourg M1900 bayonet with scabbard. This IS the Turkish M1890 bayonet made by WEYERSBERG, KIRSCHBAUM & Co. SOLINGEN and so marked on the ricasso in German, not Arabic. It has a Luxembourg serial number 00 over 144 on the left side of the crossguard. "Turkish" star and crescent markings are on the spine of the blade, the face of the crossguard, the pommel and the top fitting of the scabbard. THERE IS NO TOUHGRA and no Osmanlica serial numbers. Luxembourg purchased approximately 1,000 M1900 rifles and bayonets for their 500 man Army and 500 man Gendarmerie from Mauser Oberndorf. The rifle itself is the Swedish M1896 differing only in the markings and bayonet lug and bayonet lug retaining spring which are the same as used on Mauser's M1895 rifles.
The second is the same version of the Turkish M1887 bayonet with German script WKC ricasso marking and no Touhgra but with all the same little crossguard, spine and pommel marks we associate with the Turkish bayonets. The scabbard leather and frog are BROWN as opposed to the normal black we see on the Turkish models. Both bayonets and their scabbards are in good condition with unsharpened blades. The M1887 may be a prototype or a saleman's sample. There is no known connection to Luxembourg but I want to keep these 2 unusual bayonets together as I'm sure you will too.
$1,500 for the pair
MANCHUKUO (Japanese puppet state in occupied Manchuria 1932-1945)
14965 Mukden Mauser bayonet with scabbard. Blade remains unsharpened except for the very tip. (see pictures) Scabbard and hilt have mild pitting in spots but nothing horrible.
13155 M1910 bayonet PARTIALLY CONVERTED TO FAL. These pop up from time to time with the original muzzle ring removed and a cupped replacement welded on. The catch is removed from the pommel. The conversion was not completed by completely changing the catch mechanism, adding a rear muzzle ring and shortening the blade. The original grips are usually gone as is the case here but Bubba has added some home made grips to this one.
13630 Mexican Contract T30 bayonet with scabbard. Siamese issue. SEE LISTING UNDER SIAM
13747 M1910 bayonet with scabbard. Circle Z ricasso mark. SNs on pommel and frogstud do not match. Blade remains unsharpened.
13755 Yugoslavian made M24b Short Slot bayonet with MATCHING scabbard. I previously misidentified these as being for a Mexican contract. Yugoslavia received undelivered Mexican contract Steyr M1912 rifles from Austria after WWI and referred to them in their records are "Mexican Model" and the bayonet they made for their own use with them was also called "Mexican Model" although there is no connection between the bayonet and Mexico. My misreading of the reference material was the cause of my original misidentification. See listing under YUGOSLAVIA
13894 M1912 Austrian export bayonet with scabbard. RM on left ricasso. OEWG on right ricasso. Grips are retained with German style unslotted screwbolts with split nuts. SN 14813 stamped in the butt of the pommel. Blade remains unsharpened and scabbard bears no markings.
14017 M1912 bayonet with scabbard. SWISS CONTRACT and marked with Swiss rifle over N on ricasso and another unusual marking on the other side. Mexican ID is SPECULATIVE and I base it on the model being known in Mexican use as well as Swiss maker having had contracts with Mexico for the Mondragon bayonets.
14147 M1910 bayonet with scabbard. Circle Z ricasso mark. SNs on pommel and frogstud do not match. Blade remains unsharpened.
13298 M1910 bayonet PARTIALLY CONVERTED TO FAL Type C. Has been shortened and had double muzzle rings added. Catch aperture has been filled and a vertical aperture has been cut through the pommel. The conversions would have been complete if the new catch had been installed.
14388 M1910 bayonet with scabbard. Odd variation with uniquely Mexican grip fasteners and slightly different scabbard. Poor condition and missing the locking catch. Blade has grinding and nocks. Hilt and scabbard brown with surface rust but not pitted except on the left side of the crossguard. Crossguard marked "REPUBLICA MEXICANA" and finial ball of scabbard marked "RM" in a box. There is a small "R" in a box on the spine of the blade. I can find no indicator of who produced this bayonet.
14421 M1910 bayonet with scabbard. Circled Z maker mark. Unsharpened Blade. SNs on pommel and frogstud do not match.
14458 M1910 bayonet. Circle Z ricasso mark and sn 32712 on the pommel. Blade remains unsharpened. Grips retained with large domed rivets.
14702 M1912 Austrian export bayonet. OEWG maker on right ricasso and RM on left ricasso. Crossguard marked REPUBLICA MEXICANA on the left side and "S"_F 7540 on the right side. Blade has been sharpened but not ground. Grips are retained with the Austrian style dome headed rivets in washers. Butt of pommel is also marked RM
15008 M1936 bayonet with MATCHING scabbard. Circle Z ricasso mark is weak but present. Blade remains unsharpened and bluing is 99% intact.
