15114 M1895 Marine NCO bayonet OEWG
15136 M1871 Beaumont cruciform socket bayonet. FIRST MODEL with one piece locking ring. (Most books are wrong having the order reversed. The 2 piece locking ring definitely came after the one piece ring)
15352 KCB70M1 sawback, wirecutter bayonet with scabbard and green leather leg tie. Eickhorn/NWM. The only defect to note is that the wirecutter stud is broken off from the scabbard.
15407 Dutch M7 scabbard for Dutch copy of US M1 bayonet. Unmarked throatpiece with a injection molded plastic body similar to the Japanese plastic bodies for their NPJ made M1 bayonets. It is clearly different though with the injection port marks being smaller and in different spots.
15408 Dutch M7 scabbard for Dutch copy of US M1 bayonet. Unmarked throatpiece with a injection molded plastic body similar to the Japanese plastic bodies for their NPJ made M1 bayonets. It is clearly different though with the injection port marks being smaller and in different spots. Slight warp in scabbard body does not affect function. (see last picture)
15456 No. 1 NM Carbine doubled edged bayonet with scabbard. HEMBRUG. Blade
has been sharpened but not ground. Scabbard is solid in all aspects but has
shrunk significantly (see the last picture).

with frog and retaining strap are all solid and intact with no repairs or popped

15519 M1895 Marine NCO bayonet with scabbard and integral frog. OEWG. Show
honest wear and age. The only defect to note is a gouge in the right grip on the

12638 M1916 Long bayonet with scabbard. Janzen originally identified it as "M1894/14" and corrected it in his end notes. Unsharpened blade remains full length.
13341 M1884 Jarmann Cruciform bayonet. Serial number 9.

The hilt and scabbard steel have light rust browning but are not pitted. The frog is solid and supple but is missing 2 of the rivet backings. All stitching remains intact, solid and tight.
15457 M1916 bayonet with full length blade and early M1894/12 LONG LEATHER scabbard and frog. Estimated scabbard production was only 3,000 for the original long M1894 bayonet with fullers running the full length of the blade but examples with matching numbers to M1916 bayonets do exist although this set does not match. Scabbard has a very low serial number at 865. Has a tear near the tip but the leather is not separating at all. Stitching remains tight and leather is still supple. Janzen originally identified the bayonet it as "M1894/14" and corrected it in his end notes. Blade sharpened with some grinding marks.
15525 M1944 Krag bayonet with matching scabbard. E.A.B. Typically excellent
condition. Only 4,600 were made in Sweden for the Norwegian Government in exile

PAPAL STATES (VATICAN)
15283 M1929 bayonet with scabbard. Persian crown and serial number on butt of
pommel. Blade remains unsharpened. Blade has light staining but no rust or
pitting. Scabbard has no finish, several dings and the frog bale is bent. Blade
does not insert all the way leaving 2mm of the ricasso exposed. Bayonet sticks
in scabbard requiring a strong grip to withdraw it but no tools needed.
15385 M1929 bayonet with scabbard. Persian crown and serial number on butt of pommel. Blade remains unsharpened.
14344 Argentine M1891 bayonet with scabbard with blade SHORTENED to 233mm. Scabbard shortened correspondingly and painted white. Made by WKC. Argentine Crest remains intact. SN 0147 has been added to the crossguard and butt of the pommel. Blade remains unsharpened. Peruvian identification is speculative but generally accepted. I can be persuaded either way but the white painted scabbard on this on is something I've also seen on Peruvian conversions of the M1891 bayonet to fit the US M1 Carbine so that helps the Peruvian argument in my book.
14630 Argentine M1891 bayonet with scabbard with blade SHORTENED to 233mm. Made by WKC. Argentine Crest remains intact. SN 0244 has been added to the crossguard and butt of the pommel. Blade remains unsharpened. Peruvian identification is speculative but generally accepted.
15367 Peruvian M1935 bayonet with scabbard. FN made bayonet usually misidentified as a Czech product due to the shape of the blade emulating the VZ24 but downturned and having exposed crossguard pins. Grips are fastened with slotless scewbolts in split nuts. Minor pitting on hilt. Hairline crack in right grip running between the grip screws. Blade remains unsharpened. Scabbard is correct FN made and NOT a reused VZ24 scabbard. The thoatpiece is a bit different so it's easy to identify. Scabbard retains about 50% of its original green paint.
15498 M1935 bayonet. FN made for Peru and often misidentified as a Czech VZ24
variant. Finish is all gone and right grip is bashed up and gouged to be in poor
condition. Right grip is worn but OK. Blade has a nick on the edge bit remains
15402 S22p bayonet with scabbard. Rare Polish WZ22 that the Germans blued but is otherwise unmolested. Zbr4 ricasso marking intact and scabbard has not been altered. SEE LISTING UNDER GERMANY, NAZI (FOREIGN BAYONETS USED)

12101 M1893 bayonet with scabbard OEWG. PLATED but most of the plating has flaked off and exposed areas of hilt are rusty with moderate pitting. Blade sharpened at the tip but not all the way. Has a "crossed pennants" stamp on the side of the pommel and the Romanian Phoenix on the other side. I've only seen one other marked this way before.

RUSSIA and SOVIET UNION
14898 Ob. 1891 cruciform socket bayonet SESTROVASK (Arrow). Tip is damaged and butt end of the socket has hammering (see pics). I have test fit this to the rifle and it will mount and dismount. The locking ring turns stiffly but remains functional.
14899 Ob. 91/30 cruciform socket bayonet. Odd elbow marking looks like Israeli "zahal" property mark but more crudely stamped and not in a circle. Could be a Cyrillic "b" but the bottom is not closed.
14918 Ob. 91/30 cruciform socket bayonet. CRUDE late production. No maker mark. Unissued condition.
15261 Ob.91/30 cruciform socket bayonet. IZHVESK is my best guess for the
arsenal as the marking is barely visible to the point I could not get a useful
picture of it.
15323 Imperial Russian issued Mle. 1874 Gras bayonet. St Etienne 1877.
Sestrovyask arrow in the mortise slot. There are a few pitts on the blade but
it's not nearly as bad as it looks in the pictures. most of what you see is just
15324 M1895 Winchester bayonet. Completely stripped. Blade was lightly sharpened
but not ground at all.
15453 Ob. 1891 cruciform socket bayonet. REMINGTON with clear circled R
marking. Finish is weak and there are spots of rust with some light pitting
which I have tried to accentuate in the pictures. The locking ring is a
replacement as it's finish is much better.
SERBIA (See also YUGOSLAVIA)
12699 M1899 bayonet with scabbard. SIMSON & CO. SUHL Original version with single edged fullered blade. These are sometimes misidentified as a variant of the Spanish M1893 bayonet. Blade sharpened but not ground. Both grips have several gouges. Back side of pommel nicked up. Mild pitting on pommel and scabbard.
13254 Turkish reissued Serbian M1899 bayonet with scabbard. See listing under Turkey.
14008 M1899C (M1915) double edged bayonet with matching scabbard. (See listing under Yugoslavia)
14066 M1899C (M1915) double edged bayonet. Plumb ricasso marking scrubbed but otherwise unaltered with exposed crossguard pins and domed grip rivets in washers. Blade shows no signs of post-factory sharpening.
14096 M1899C (M1915) double edged bayonet. PLUMB 1916
14097 M1899C (M1915) double edged bayonet with scabbard. PLUMB 1915 with correct flat tipped scabbard. Frogstud is missing.
14310 Serbian issued M1895 bayonet with scabbard. WKC. "C" spine mark.
14403 M1899 bayonet with scabbard OEWG. This is the single edged fullered blade type that is often mistaken for a Spanish M1893 bayonet. Scabbard was pitted and has been painted black over it. Entire bayonet shows signs of have been rusted with medium pitting to the blade and lighter pitting to the hilt. The rust was completely removed and and the pitting mostly buffed off leaving the edge of the blade out of it's original profile. I am 95% certain the grips are replacements but whoever made them did a fine job and used the correct type of retaining rivets that appear very professionally installed. Not a bad restoration job but restored nonetheless.
14557 Bulgarian re-issued Serbian M1880 Mauser-Milanovic bayonet with fascinating conversion scabbard. SEE LISTING UNDER BULGARIA
14707 Turkish reissued Serbian M1899 bayonet with scabbard. See listing
13339 M1907? Double edged bayonet with scabbard for GEW1888 Commission Rifle. See listing under CHINA
13630 Siamese T30 bayonet with scabbard. Bayonet seems to be a reworked Japanese piece as opposed to the Siamese produced version but there is no evidence of a Japanese arsenal mark having ever been on the ricasso and no indication that one has been removed. The blued blade is completely unsharpened like the Japanese produced Mexican contract bayonets and I believe this is one that was not delivered to Mexico and subsequently sold to Siam. Siamese SN on the butt of the pommel and what may be a very faint small Charka on the left ricasso. Scabbard is the Siamese model with no loop in the throat retaining band and a German style frogstud on the front of the scabbard. The grips are definitely replaced and are fastened with simple pins. The new grips are of the same wood found on regripped T45 bayonets and appear to be mass produced as opposed to hand made.
14045 T51 bayonet with scabbard. T30 style hilt with M1 style blade. Grips retained with German style slotless screwbolts in spanner nuts. Blade remains unsharpened. Dents in scabbard. Gouges in left grip. Cracks in right grip but grip remains tight and solid. For T47 Short Rifle so I suspect the T51 nomenclature is not correct.
14397 M1888 double edged bayonet with scabbard for the Mauser GEW71, GEW71/84 and GEW1888 Commission rifle. The Charka remains intact on the right side of the crossguard but any other marking were polished away. Bubba really did a number on this one by polishing the daylights out of it then bluing it and making oak replacement grips held by crude rivets in washers. The blade is canted 3 degrees to the left. The scabbard is a complete abortion as well. If you don't have one of these it would only be a starter piece or would be good for someone with the rifle that wants a bayonet without breaking the bank.
15392 Austrian RG1888/95 bayonet with scabbard. OEWG. For former RG88 rifles updated by Austria during WWI by installing an M1895 barrel. Identical to M1888 bayonet but with smaller 15mm MRID. Siamese markings on the butt of the pommel. Unsharpened blade and still retains its original Austrian grips held by dome headed rivets in washers. Absolutely no Austrian property markings. I can find no record of Siam using this rifle but here is a clearly Siamese issued bayonet for it.

15297 SLOVAK VZ24 bayonet with scabbard. CSZ R on ricasso and SLOVAK E1(Mountains and cross)40 on tang. Blade remains unsharpened.

12971 M1893 straightback bayonet. ARTILLERIA FCA DE TOLEDO 1899. Unsharpened blade and grip retained with original smooth rivets. Very good condition.
13079 M1892/93 Humpback bayonet with scabbard. Ricasso marked "ARTILLERIA 1899" denoting this is one of the actual bayonets repatriated from Cuba after the Spanish American War. This model was never produced in Spain and the markings were added during arsenal rehab of the repatriated bayonets. All markings are faint but readable. Well worn and showing its age but not a relic by any means. Blade sharpened.
13525 M1983 Straightback bayonet. VERY EARLY with ricasso marked ARTILLERIA FCA DE TOLEDO 1894. Original grips retained by flush rivets intact. Rough condition with worn and chipped grips, blade sharpened but not ground and has a couple of pitted spots.
13878 M1892/93 Humpback bayonet with scabbard. ARTILLERIA FcA TOLEDO 1899 Spanish American War used bayonet from Cuba that was repatriated to Spain and re-arsenalled. The Toledo arsenal did not produce this model bayonet. Grips retained with screws in escutcheons. Blade remains unsharpened.
13879 Leather frog for a hunting plug bayonet. Fragile, cracking and in generally poor condition but not disintegrating.
14098 Spanish issued Czech VZ24 bayonet with scabbard. Bayonet has been typically buffed bright and the scabbard buffed then heavily blued. This is unmistakably a Spanish arsenal rework.
14859 M1941 bolo bayonet with scabbard and plastic grips. NAVAL ISSUE differing from the more common Army issue in that the Naval arsenal has heavily parkerized the entire bayonet and scabbard and installed plastic grips that differ slightly from the rare Army plastic grips.
15022 Spanish M1892/93 Humpback bayonet with scabbard. SIMSON & CO SUHL.
Blade remains unsharpened.
15149 M1892/93 Humpback bayonet with scabbard. ARTILLERIA Fca DE TOLEDO 1899 ricasso marking. Spanish American War used bayonet from Cuba that was repatriated to Spain and re-arsenalled.

15273 FR7, FR8 + CETME Bolo bayonet with scabbard.
15303 M1943 bayonet WITH MUZZLE RING with scabbard. This is the model incorrectly referred to in books as "M1936". Blade remains unsharpened but condition is poor. Most markings are worn away and the grips have about half the wood worn off. Scabbard has a dented/slightlt bent end but function is not affected and it is the correct scabbard unique to this model.
15327 SPANISH M1891 bayonet with scabbard. Sometimes referred to as a "Philippine"
bayonet. It is actually a WKC made Argentine M1891 with wood grips instead of
metal and has no Argentine markings. Has WKC ricasso mark and Spanish cross on
the stem of the crossguard. Serviceable but in rough condition with rust and
pitting all over.
15340 M1892/93 bayonet with scabbard. SIMSON & CO. SUHL. Blade sharpened and buffed down.
15361 M1892/93 bayonet with scabbard. SIMSON & CO. SUHL. This is an excellent
example of an original unmolested bayonet with grip rivets untouched and
markings on crossguard and blade spine intact. Most were rehabbed over the years
and the grip rivets were replaced with screws. The scabbard is also the original
German style with rigid leather body and unidirectional throatpiece. Blade
remains unsharpened. The only damage to note is some hammering marks on the butt
of the pommel (pictured) but the bayonet still mounts and dismounts from the
15366 M1892/93 bayonet. SIMSON & CO. SUHL Original rivet retained grips,
crossguard and spine markings intact. Blade sharpened but not ground.
15484 M1871/93 triform socket bayonet. Former M71 Rolling Block bayonet with
heavily modified socket to fit the M1893 Mauser. Blade has light to medium
pitting in on the forward 2/3rds. Wide locking ring turns freely.
15497 M1893 bayonet WEYERSBERG, KIRSCHBAUM & Co SOLINGEN. Blade sharpened
with lots of grinding striations and chatter marks. Blade also has mild pitting
with medium pitting on crossguard. Pommel has staing with some very mild pitting
in spots. Grips are retained with the original domed rivest in washers. Grips
are in good used condition showing use but not abuse. These WKC made examples
are exceptionally rare as WKC on made 500 of them total.
15514 M1892/93 Humpback bayonet with scabbard. SIMSON & CO SUHL. Very early
example with original grip rivets and German style rigid leather scabbard with
unidirectional throatpiece opening. Scabbard leather has softened slightly but
is not flopy like the Spanish made ones. Leather is crazed with some areas of
flaking but remains solid and stitching is intact and tight. Wooden grips have
striation like they have been sanded coarsly. Blade remains unsharpened.

13941 M1896 bayonet frog only.
14163 M1914 bayonet with scabbard.
15131 M1914 bayonet with scabbard.
15272 M1896 bayonet with scabbard. EJ AB I included a damaged frog but it is
not part of the value of the unit. Also comes with the retainin g clip on the
15501 M1896 frog only
15510 M1896 bayonet with scabbard and frog. EJ AB. Blade has been sharpened
with some minor loss of aspect near the hilt which should be apparant in the
pictures. Scabbard numbers do not match the bayonet.
13130 M1918 bayonet with scabbard WAFFENFABRIK NEUHAUSEN
14496 M1887 Sawback Vetterli bayonet. S.J.G. NEUHAUSEN 3 rivet grips. Minor dent in cutting edge near the tip (see pic).
14502 M1900 Cruciform "Bicyclist's" bayonet with small MRID for use on M1911 Carbines and later K31 Short rifles. Muzzle ring appears purpose made in the diameter as opposed to being a larger ring example that has been bushed.
14639 STG57 bayonet with scabbard. F+W in a circle on the left ricasso and W over 580828 on the right side. Typically very good condition. I also have a couple of the leather frogs for these listed and will bundle one with this at a discount if desired by the buyer.
14901 M1918 double edged bayonet with scabbard ELSENER SCHWYZ VICTORIA
14961 M1878 Vetterli bayonet (4 rivet grips) with M1881 scabbard. SJC NUEHAUSEN. Left grip is marred up. (See pics)
