Order #BOA eBook on CD-ROM entitled "Bayonets of Afghanistan" ©2006 Created and published by yours truly, Dennis D. Ottobre. PICTURE The first book published on the subject of Afghan bayonets. Includes hundreds of detailed color photos with the option to view larger more detailed images of many pieces depicted. Covers a total of 88 bayonet variants from Afghanistan including a section devoted to spotting fake and fantasy pieces being sold as genuine items on the current collector's market. Dozens of the variants listed have never previously been published. Includes a numerical reference system for quick referencing and is formatted to be more printer friendly for those who would like to make a hard copy for their own use. As with my previous eBook "Observations On Turkish Bayonets" I have left room for expansion and if I receive the same type of participation and feedback from readers sharing more variant items from their own collections for future updates I will keep a list of updates posted here so you can see if you might want to upgrade to a newer version in the future. LAST UPDATE FEBRUARY 2011 Click here for a chronological list of materially significant updates.

12739 Afghan reissued British P1907 bayonet with scabbard. WILKINSON PALL MALL 11/16 with Dari SN on pommel. No British rehab dates and the blade retains the original bright luster finish.

$7 each or 3 for $20
I have a scant few of these with the original locking pin $10 each
12263 M1909 bayonet with MATCHING scabbard. BLOCK LETTER WKC ricasso marking as opposed to the normal Italic type marking found on most Argentine bayonets. Crest intact.
12470 M1909 bayonet with MATCHING SCABBARD. DGFM made with crest Intact. Blade remains unsharpened.
13044 M1891 bayonet with MATCHING single screw scabbard but has ALUMINUM grips. SN E0291. Crest ground. WKC manufacturer. The single screw type scabbard is associated with the early production runs of the M91 bayonet made with brass grips but the 2 rivet scabbard was standardized prior to the change to aluminum grips. The most plausible explanation is that this bayonet was rehabbed and had the grips changed in the process. The blade has been re-buffed and is not as lustrous as the German factory polished finish so that fits. I have only observed one other such example in the D SN block but that one did not display any sign of blade buffing. Still, the blade remains unsharpened on this one and overall condition is good.
13071 M1909 bayonet with MATCHING scabbard. Crest intact. RARE BLOCK LETTER WKC mark on ricasso. Blade remains unsharpened. Scabbard is missing the right side throat rivet.

11871 P1907 bayonet with scabbard OA 9/45.
12048 P1907 bayonet with scabbard. Australian issued WILKINSON 2/18 with D/|\D 3 on the crossguard and 3MD 38776 on front lip of scabbard throat fitting. The pommel has the D containing a broad arrow. Scabbard is LITHGOW 1919. Right grip cracked but remains solid and tight.

13256 LITHGOW SMALL BUTTON P1907 scabbard only. Lip of throatpiece marked "3MD 61964" Leather is marked "LITHGOW" next to a faint 7 pointed star but the date that follows it is not readable.
13332 P1907 bayonet with scabbard OA 11/42. Scabbard fittings marked MA and leather only marked "W". The W is faint and would not come out in a picture. Tip of blade shows wear and forward half of the blade has some crusty black coating on it making the finish look better than it actually is. I wiped it with WD40 and it did not come off but it would if it were wire brushed. The blade has been improperly sharpened but not ground.

11893 M1799 Cruciform socket bayonet in near relic condition. I have to admit I had no reference for this bayonet and just chanced to see one identified on Jason Kaplan's website so let me give credit where credit is due and plug Jason's site here and now;-) http://jjmilitaryantiques.com/
12628 RG1888/95 bayonet with scabbard OEWG. For former RG88 rifles updated during WWI by installing an M1895 barrel. Identical to M1888 bayonet but with smaller 15mm MRID. NAVY issue bayonet with anchor on the right grip.
12672 M1895 Steyr bayonet with scabbard. rare "Stf." ricasso mark. Former NCO with hook and troddle loop removed. Missing catch. Blade buffed. Scabbard plated.

BAVARIA see GERMANY, IMPERIAL
12010 M1868 Brass Hilted Terssen Carbine yataghan bayonet with scabbard. Blade remains unsharpened. Scabbard has some dents around the throat end but function is not affected. Frog retaining bale is loose but not falling off. I had thought this was a French Chasspot scabbard as the numbers don't match but after looking through my photo archive I have had other M68 Terssen carbine bayonets in these scabbards with the same block letter "B" serial number prefix and "T" mark on the front. It would seem too simple to suppose the B is for Belgium and the T is for Terssen so I'll leave that thought for speculation but being that I have documented at least 3 of these scabbards so marked on Terssen bayonets I have to believe they are correct scabbards.
12547 FN24/49 long bayonet with scabbard Unsharpened blade has many nicks on the edge. Scabbard is missing the throat screw.
12646 M1868 Brass Hilted Terssen Carbine Yataghan bayonet with scabbard. Dated 1869 on the ricasso. Blade remains unsharpened. Bale missing from scabbard.
12647 M1916/24 Long Double Edged bayonet with scabbard. (This is not to be confused with the common FN1924 bayonet, the nomenclature is officially M1916 with the /24 added by collectors to differentiate the later version from the earlier one.). Identical to the M1916 bayonet but the crossguard is forged right on to the hilt as opposed to being a separate piece pinned on like the M1916. Large muzzle ring for use with the M1889 series rifles. Original full length 450mm blade is unsharpened. Grips are nicked up and finish on scabbard is very weak. Otherwise there are no deficiencies to note.
12735 Egyptian Issue FN49 short double edged bayonet with scabbard. SEE AD UNDER EGYPT
12874 FN49 short double edged bayonet with matching scabbard. Late production with T mortise slot, solid tang and no clearing hole in the grips.
13264 Luftwaffe? Reissued Belgian M1916/24 bayonet with scabbard and frog. (The "24" is unofficial collector nomenclature denoting the later cast type hilt.) I am at a loss for the German nomenclature for this one. It is very untypically full length as the Germans usually shortened them. The frog is a brown German S84/98 model with mounted retaining strap deliberately removed and the stud hole has been crudely opened up to accept the Belgian frogstud. The scabbard throat retainer has been changed from the Belgian front and back rivets to German side mounted screw. The muzzle ring is the large size for use with the M1889 rifle with barrel jacket. Blade remains unsharpened. Was stored in a garage so expose surfaces of all the steel has been rusted and has surface pitting. German rack number added to ricasso.
13314 M1965 FAL Apple Corer bayonet with steel multi purpose scabbard.
13315 M1965 FAL Apple Corer bayonet with plastic scabbard and integral frog. Caste as opposed to being machined.

13317 Steel Scabbard with integral frog for FAL Apple Corer bayonet. Air Force
12505 M1904 Yataghan bayonet. 1 of only 5,000 made for Brazilian Police and so marked on the ricasso with star crest and "FPDF" represnting FORCA PUBLICA DISTRITO FEDERAL (Military Police of the National Capitol). This is the last yataghan bayonet made in history.
12548 M1934 bayonet. Unsharpened blade.
12596 M1968 bayonet with scabbard and integral frog. This is a conversion of a shortened M1908 or M1934 bayonet with a new crossguard with large muzzle ring to fit former M1908 rifles converted to trainers in a configuration closer to modern issue assault rifles very much like the Spanish FR7 and FR8 training rifles. I have fewer than one dozen. The example picture shows 2 bayonets, 1 on each side. Price is for a SINGLE bayonet with scabbard and frog. Condition is UNISSUED.
12932 M1934 bayonet. Unsharpened blade.
13501 M1908 bayonet with brass bound leather scabbard. W,K&Cie SOLINGEN
13561 M1935 bayonet with scabbard. Blade remains unsharpened. German commercial production for Brazilian contract. Design based on the S84/98 bayonet but with diagonal pommel, a full muzzle ring and a short T/O mortise slot. Scabbard also based on the German S84/98 but with a different throatpiece.

12648 P1907 bayonet with scabbard. SANDERSON 1/16 , "C" containing a Broad Arrow on pommel. Almond stud scabbard dated 1917. NO REHAB DATES and has never had the clearing hole update to the pommel. The only thing done later was that the unit mark was removed from the side of the pommel. Excellent example of a WWI Canadian issued P1907.

CHINA (see also TAIWAN)
12964 GEW1888 Double Edged bayonet with scabbard. RARE WKC ricasso marking. The vast majority of these bayonets are unmarked. Scabbard is patterned after an Austrian M1888 type but is a bit longer and has a distinctly longer frog hook. Chinese ID is speculative and based on the fact that this bayonet came with a Chinese frog which I kept for my own collection. Also has what appears to be a Chinese character carved into the left grip.

12922 M1929? bayonet with scabbard OEWG Unsharpened blade. Austrian M1912 export bayonet with grips retained by unslotted screwbolts in split nuts. SN on scabbard and butt of pommel do not match but they both begin with the F prefix over the numbers. Colombian ID is somewhat speculative but generally accepted based on the F prefix SNs.

Ricasso marked ALEX COPPELL over SOLINGEN. Drag staple missing and chape staple soldered into place but both fittings remain tight and scabbard has not shrunk and has no folds. There is a "slit" in the leather running along the "cutting edge" of the scabbard for 5 1/5 inches right in the center. It is not opening up and is so innocuous that I almost missed it entirely.
12341 M1947 Madsen bayonet with scabbard. Butt of pommel marked "0938" otherwise typically unmarked. Shows use but not abuse. Blade remains unsharpened. Paint on scabbard is 99% intact. Paint on hilt is 40% intact. Grips have some nicks and scratches.

12737 Mle. 1958 bayonet with scabbard and integral green leather frog for Mle. 49/56 rifle. Also has what may be an original ordnance sticker on the back of the frog.
12786 Mle.1866 Chasspot yatghan bayonet. Mre Impale de Chat' Avril 1870.
12791 Mle.1886 Lebel 1st model cruciform bayonet. Non-removable alloy grip. Hooked Quillon. Crossguard heavily pitted.
12939 Mle.1886/15 cruciform bayonet with scabbard. Alloy grip. COMPLETELY UNMARKED. I suspect this may indicate REMINGTON production. Scabbard slightly bent but function remains unaffected.
13156 Mle.1956 bayonet with scabbard and integral green leather frog. This is the first model bayonet for the MAS49/56 rifle with longer blade and contoured scabbard for the longer false edge. These were quickly replaced by the simplified Mle.1958 bayonet with slightly shorter "flat stock" blade and non-contoured scabbard which is usually misidentified as the actual Mle.1956.
13177 Mle.1874 GRAS bayonet with MATCHING scabbard. St. Etienne Avril 1879 SEE LISTING UNDER RUSSIA/SOVIET UNION
13180 Mle. 1874 Gras bayonet. Colonial Anchor on crossguard. Spine marking unreadable.

13200 Mle. 1886/16 Lebel bayonet with scabbard. No quillon and brass grip. Bayonet is completely unmarked which some references say indicates it is made by Remington. I'm still not 100% positive on this point so make your own judgment.
13296 Mle 1866 Chasspot bayonet. Blade remains unsharpened but has several small scabbard insertion nicks (pictured). Blade has staing with a few small actual rust spots which I am sure would reveal minor pitts if they were wire wheeled off. Blade and crossguard have been coated in clear laquer.
13297 Mle. 1874 Gras bayonet. Blade remains unsharpened.
13327 Mle. 1956 bayonet with Matching scabbard and GREEN frog. E-RM. NOT the more common M1958 model usually found with the Mle.1949/56 rifles. Excellent condition.
13328 Mle. 1956 bayonet with Matching scabbard and BROWN frog. E-HF. NOT the more common M1958 model usually found with the Mle.1949/56 rifles. Excellent condition.
13360 Mle. 1892 Berthier carbine bayonet FROG ONLY. Scabbard strap is intact but the left side of the buckle retaining strap is broken (see pic). leather is overall starting to stiffen but the belt loop remains flexible. There is a small tear in the face leather on the right side at the bottom of the seam with the backing that did not come out on the pictures. All stitching remains intact and tight.
13361 Mle. 1886 Lebel bayonet with matching(?) scabbard. FIRST MODEL with non-removable silver alloy grip. Middle 2 numbers of the sn on both scabbard and bayonet match bit the rest of it is just too poorly struck for me to guarantee they match.
13362 Mle. 1958 bayonet with matching scabbard. MAT F marked on both scabbard and bayonet. Green frog. EXCELLENT PLUS condition.
13517 Mle. 1874 GRAS bayonet. Mre d'Armes de St. Etienne ?bre 1876. Blade remains unsharpened. Shallow pitting on blade. Tip blunted. Flat spot on butt of pommel but no deformation affecting function. Grips scratched up as if they had been lightly sanded or been exposed to a wire brush.
