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.

INDIA (ALSO SEE GREAT BRITAIN and NEPAL)
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.
14322 MkI** bayonet with scabbard and frog. OA with X bending proof on ricasso indicates this was formerly and Australian P1907 bayonet.
14343 P1907 bayonet with scabbard RFI 11/17 WITH FALSE EDGE ADDED. Blade also crudely sharpened.
14094 Indonesian M1 Garand bayonet with scabbard and frog. Wood grips retained with brass rivets. Slab sided appearance similar to US T2 prototypes. Blade remains unsharpened but has many small scabbard nicks in the edge. There is also some spots of pitting on the blade that should show up well in the pictures. There is a drain hole drilled in the tip of the scabbard. Wooden grips are worn and nicked up but remain tight and solid.
14149 Dutch M1895 Infantry bayonet with scabbard and frog. HEMBRUG. Scabbard and frog are unusual. They are unmarked and very crude compared to the regular issue items but still well made and there was never a metal ball tip on it. I suspect them to be colonial replacements and Indonesian in particular but have no solid evidence. SEE LISTING UNDER NETHERLANDS.
14382 FN24/49 SHORT bayonet with scabbard. Extremely rare short version of the FN24/49 bayonet for the FN49 Semi-Automatic rifle. These short versions based on the FN24 Short Export bayonet with large MRID are reportedly for the Indonesian contract only but the information available is somewhat speculative although generally accepted. This is the fullered single edged bladed Mauser style bayonet and NOT the common double edged version.

13388 M1871/87 Vetterli-Vitali bayonet with 12" blade and hooked quillon intact. Long leaf spring with stablizer notch. TA. Blade shortened to 12" to match the M1891 bayonet blade length. Not the more common 9" blade variation from WWI.

13864 Green leather extra equipment frog for carrying both bayonet and either a pick axe or shovel. EXCELLENT CONDITION
13865 Piedmont M1844 Artillery Carbine bayonet. Blade badly pitted.
13935 M1891 or M1938 Moschetto folding triform spike bayonet. No finish and rough surface. Looks like it was sandblasted.

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.
14048 M1891/97 TS bayonet with brass bound leather scabbard and green leather frog. No visible maker mark. Ricasso is pitted.
14143 M1871/87/15 Vetterli-Carcano bayonet with scabbard. Scabbard is a S.A REJNA 1935 purpose made replacement. Hilt has the long spring and stablizer notch in the muzzle ring.

14205 M1891/97 TS bayonet. BRESCIA. Grips are dinged up but solid and tight. Blade was never sharpened beyond the factory sharpening. Blade is warped very slightly to the right but it's not bad enough to get a useful picture. Catch works fine.

14387 SCABBARD ONLY for Italian made No.1 MkIII Enfield bayonet. The bayonets were made Post WWII using M1891 bayonet blades with a different pommel and crossguard to fit the British No.1 Enfield. The scabbard has a black leather body like the British P1907 scabbard using an identical steel tip but made in the appropriate length for the M1891 blade and using a steel throatpiece patterned from the Italian M1891 scabbard throat. The scabbard was newly purpose made in Italy and the fittings are marked with Italian markings.
14393 M1871/87/15 Vetterli-Carcano bayonet with scabbard LEATHER ONLY. BRESCIA made bayonet shortened to 9" blade with hooked quillon removed. Long spring and no stablizer notch. Scabbard leather is one of the REJNA 1935 replacements.
11884 T30 bayonet with scabbard MUKDEN (HOTEN) LB-168, Variation C, 51st Series
12123 T18 Murata bayonet scabbard throatpiece fitting only. Complete with all pins, springs and faceplate. Mostly dark with rust staining and there is pitting on the frogstud. If you have the scabbard leather and tip here is your chance to complete it.
12562 T30 bayonet with scabbard TOKYO Early SN "209330" on tang. Unusual "W" on ricasso next to Tokyo stacked cannon ball mark. LB-73. LaBar says nothing about the "W".
12627 T99 Naval Special Rifle bayonet with scabbard. Scabbard is steel and looks like it's actually a trainer scabbard that was added to this bayonet. It's dented up and has been improperly painted black but is serviceable.
13106 T30 bayonet with scabbard and frog. Kokura Var. B LB-76. Frog is single loop with full back LBF-49. Blade improperly sharpened but not ground. Hilt has surface rust with light pitting.
13193 T30 training bayonet with scabbard. ROCKING STAR Variation T-F, LBT-216
13250 T44 folding bayonet. Spike only with no nose fitting. Comes with the stacking hook but the hook shaft was cut short.
13251 T99 Naval Special Rifle bayonet.
13599 T99 Naval Special Rifle bayonet with rubberized scabbard with integral frog. Scabbard and frog are typically hardened and crazed with a bit of the coating flaked off of the frog where the belt loops bend but otherwise this is a nice solid set with the bayonet itself being in overall VERY GOOD condition.
13630 Mexican Contract T30 bayonet with scabbard. Siamese issue. SEE LISTING UNDER SIAM
13766 T30 bayonet with scabbard. Indonesian Crossguard conversion. Nagoya Triangle. SEE LISTING UNDER INDONESIA
13868 Leather T30 bayonet frog only. 2 belt loop type. Missing rivet on the right side.
14055 MEXICAN CONTRACT T30 bayonet with scabbard. SEE LISTING UNDER MEXICO
14116 7/8 Child's training rifle bayonet with scabbard. Checkered steel hilt. Both bayonet and scabbard were painted gold long ago. I am unsure if it was done by the school that used it or just someone who couldn't just leave it alone. On the chance that the paint is correct I am leaving it painted.
14145 T44 Cavalry carbine folding spike bayonet First Model (complete assembly except for the 2 mounting screws)
14146 T44 Cavalry carbine folding spike bayonet First Model (complete assembly except for the 2 mounting screws) Has a few spots of rust on blade.
14346 T30 bayonet with no arsenal mark on the ricasso. Variation A with bright blade appears to be early Tokyo arsenal production with inspector's marks and later style serial number on the butt of the pommel so does not fit neatly into LaBar's chronology of these early bayonets. Definitely NOT a Mexican contract piece UNLESS it was a leftover one that was accepted in to Japanese service later where it received the blade sharpening, inspection mark on crossguard and later style serial number on the butt of the pommel.
14380 T18 Murata bayonet. Mum on crossguard intact.
JORDAN (see also TRANSJORDAN)
KOREA, NORTH (Communist)
14035 North Korean M1968 AKM bayonet with scabbard missing frog loop. Unique Bowie point type. The face of the muzzle ring was marred and subsequently buffed and cold blued. This would probably go un-noticed but I like to point this kind of thing out. Otherwise typically excellent condition.
KOREA (ROK) SOUTH
13150 ROK M5 bayonet. This is a cut down US M1 or M1905 bayonet with narrowed 6 1/2" blade designated "M5" by Korea.
13151 ROK M5 bayonet. This is a cut down US M1 or M1905 bayonet with narrowed 6 1/2" blade designated "M5" by Korea.
13869 Lebanese G3 bayonet with scabbard and integral frog. Nomenlature unknown.
MANCHUKUO (Japanese puppet state in occupied Manchuria 1932-1945)
14327 Mukden Mauser bayonet with scabbard. Blade sharpened only close to the edge, otherwise very good condition. I ASSUME the blade sharpening is improper but have not had one of these before. Since they were made under Japanese influence it could easily be that the sharpening was in keeping with Japanese policy. Additional information would be very welcome.
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.
13329 M1936 bayonet with scabbard. Mismatched scabbard. Scuff on right grip. Finish on blade shows some wear but no sharpening.
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.
14055 MEXICAN CONTRACT Japanese T30 bayonet with scabbard. Identical to the early Japanese model except that there is no maker's mark at all and the blade is left completely unsharpened as opposed the the Japanese version being sharpened in the forward 2/3 of the blade.
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.
