14030 S98/05 bayonet FROG ONLY. Pocket rivets missing and reinforced with added stitching. Faint unit mark on back reads Pb 85 as best I can tell which I believe is police.

Blade sharpened but not ground and has staining and pitting on the left side. Hilt has high ears and no flashguard and is dark with age but not rusted or pitted.

14364 M1862 Dreyse triform socket bayonet.
14378 S14 Gottscho bayonet with CORRECT scabbard. KS (Lightbulb) ricasso mark. Blade is 3/4 sharpened but absolutely not ground in any way. I have not handled enough of these to state that this is factory standard sharpening but of the few I have had I have not seen an unsharpened example. The scabbard has been pitted and repainted gloss black. The left scabbard throat screw was installed off center (see pics) and is stripped. It stays in loosely on it's own but I have dabbed on a bit of glue to ensure it does not fall out. Despite these shortcomings this IS a correct Gottscho scabbard
14399 S98 Quillback bayonet with scabbard. SAXON FA 12 spine mark. Ricasso marked "W.K & CIE" over "SOLINGEN". Blade sharpened but not ground.
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.
13736 S98/05nA bayonet with scabbard. ACT. GES. VORM. FRISTER & ROSSMANN BERLIN ricasso mark overstamped with the HENCKLES dancing twins logo. Prussian W17 spine mark. Completely blued but no other Weimar marks or modifications. The cutting edge is unsharpened. It was flattened when the bayonet was refinished and there is a VERY slight loss of aspect in the edge as a result.

The following lot of No.4 MKII spike bayonets are in SURPLUS condition at worst. Rather than investing time in taking individual pictures I've decided to just show a group picture to give you an idea about the condition range and sell them for less than I would if I had to invest the time taking detailed pictures. As a bonus you can have the packing grease on them for free;-) The ones labeled NO SIGNIFICANT MARKINGS may or may not have N67 codes or be stamped MADE IN ENGLAND. If it matters to you let me know when you order and I'll do my best to meet your preferences.

14356 FAKE P1853 socket bayonet with scabbard. Artificially aged to look in rough and rusted condition with crazed scabbard leather. INDIA stamped on the ricasso.
13245 Greek contract M1 bayonet with scabbard. EN S over E_(bomb)US on ricasso. E-US in bomb on scabbard throat. Scabbard tip has a bit broken off but scabbard remains functional. Some peppering of rust spots and a few pits on blade. No improper sharpening.
14309 Y:1903/14 bayonet with scabbard. ERIDI GNUTTI BRESCIA. Blade remains unsharpened. Scabbard has rust and pitting. Bayonet also has rust, staining and some pitting. Grips have several small gouges and nicks. Despite the surface condition the bayonet remains serviceable.
14349 GREEK ISSUE USM5A1 bayonet with M8A1 scabbard. MILPAR COL bayonet with VIZ scabbard with original US small steel tip and leg tie. The Greeks removed the DAS stamp from the crossguard and added a mark like a number 8 with a line through its apex in its place. This could be a VERY stylized letter phi but that may be a bit if a stretch of the imagination. The crossguard has been serial numbered "4368" on the right side and "theta theta 23140" on the left side. Blade was professionally sharpened to include the false edge and refinished. I believe this is arsenal work. Crossguard wiggle a little but remains serviceable.
13287 M1969 CETME bayonet with scabbard and integral frog. Differs from more common Spanish model by having a smooth grip, diagonal pommel/grip line, different shaped catch, black scabbard and fullered blade. Good used surplus condition.
