12344 M1868 Rolling Block Cruciform socket bayonet for Militia (also noted as Gendarmarie). Overall length is 598mm. Blade length is 525mm. Socket length is 67mm. . Bore diameter of socket is 18.5mm which is what differentiates this example from the near identical Cuban contract version. Blade width is 14.75mm at the base. The blade "height" thickness is 20.85mm at the base. The shank measures 25mm from bore to blade. Z-mortise slot is configured so blade will be situated below the barrel when mounted.
11838 M1929 bayonet with scabbard.
11839 M1929 bayonet with scabbard.
13114 M1935 bayonet with scabbard. This is the FN made bayonet that is usually misidentified as being Czech made. Unsharpened blade. Rare variant with grips retained by Spanner screws in smooth escutcheons (Like early Belgian and Yugo fasteners.)
12807 M7 bayonet with scabbard and integral frog. For US M16. STERILE bayonet which I SPECULATE to be Philippine. Unfortunately the scabbard is a US Black plastic M10 and not the unique embossed Philippine scabbard.
13175 Philippine M7 bayonet with correct scabbard bearing Philippine crest and black cotton leg tie. Bayonet is typically sterile. Scabbard throat also bears the letters AFP.
11978 WZ22 bayonet with scabbard. Clearly marked "WZ22" on the right side of the pommel and "Zbr.4." over "90188" on right ricasso and Polish eagle over "W.P." on the left ricasso. Made with no flashguard. Blade sharpened but not ground. Scabbard is correct type but sn is 55816. Very rare bayonet and correctly identified. Sadly most examples I see advertised as a WZ22 are actually just misidentified and more common WZ24 bayonets.
12607 WZ22 bayonet with scabbard. Zbr.4
12665 WZ98 bayonet with scabbard. Former German S98/05nA bayonet (Sawback removed) reissued by Poland after WWI. The Poles installed smooth grips, removed the flashguard, added SN 140606 to the left side of the crossguard and stamped a "Boxed P" property mark on the left side of the quillon. Left ricasso marked "ACT.GES. VORM." over "Frister & Rossmann" over "BERLIN". Right ricasso marked with large Henckles twins. Fraktur "O" inspection mark on spine and typically no date or imperial property mark.. Blade has been sharpened, scabbard dented up but functional and the Polish grips have some hairline cracks but are not in any danger of falling off or breaking. There is also one additional fracktur inspection mark that I can't really make out on the blade spine that was added after the saw teeth were removed. It is on the ground down area and I believe it was a re-inspection mark from the rework.

13183 RARE M1886 Kropatschek CARBINE bayonet with scabbard. Has the larger nominal 16.5mm MRID. Only about 1000 Carbines were produced. STEYR 1886 on spine. Grips are worn but they remain solid and tight. Mounts and dismounts smoothly from rifle. Blade remains unsharpened but has numerous small nicks. This is only the second carbine variant of this bayonet I have ever seen.
13184 PM35 bayonet with scabbard. Usually misidentified in books as an "M1934". It is a former Simson and Co. made M1904 converted to emulate the attaching dimensions of the Austrian M1895 bayonet. This conversion was done to make the bayonets useable on the Portuguese Steyr-Soluthurn M1934 SMG.
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.
12523 VZ24 bayonet with scabbard and frog. "945" ricasso marking and Romanian CM on tang as well as Romanian pommel markings.
13227 M1893 bayonet. OEWG. Pitted pommel and crossguard. Blade ground.

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.
12339 M1920 "Pussycat" bayonet with all steel scabbard. Former British P1907 sold to Siam and marked with the Tiger's head on the ricasso with a Siamese serial number. Scabbards were originally leather bodies and as the leather rotted away the fittings were recycled onto steel replacement bodies and painted black. Blade has been improperly sharpened but is not badly ground up. Original bending test mark remains intact on the right ricasso along with British inspection stamp. These markings indicate the bayonet was made at RFI. The left ricasso was scrubbed and the Tiger's Head and Siamese serial number added. The Tiger's head is exceptionally clear on this example.
13172 Siamese copy of Japanese T30 bayonet with scabbard and FAKE frog. This is the bayonet published in COLLECTING BAYONETS by J.A. MADDOX Reference #264 on page 212. Maddox classifies the nomenclature as "Type 47" and states it is for the Siamese T47 carbine but it will not fit that rifle. It fits Japanese T38 rifles which were also used by the Siamese. Labar classifies it as a "Type 46" (LB-291 in Bayonets Of Japan) and states it is for a Type 46 rifle which I have no reference for but states it will also fir the T47 carbine. What is known for sure is that the Siamese T66 bayonet fits the T47 carbine and will not fit Japanese T30, T38 and T99 rifles so there is some error with regard to the rifles in the literature. I have mounted this bayonet on a Japanese T38 rifle and it is a perfect fit. For now the Siamese nomenclature will remain in question to us English speakers;-) Bayonet and scabbard are in good condition with no defects to note. The frog remains fake.
12569 No.9 bayonet with scabbard. For No.4 Enfield rifles.
13045 P1907 bayonet SOUTH AFRICAN ISSUED with Broad Arrow in "U" on pommel. Dated 11/15 but maker name is unreadable. One rehab date "'19". Pommel has unit mark "4" over "B.S.C" over "19?" Grips are good but all steel has been sand blasted and left a bit rough. Milt hammering and mushrooming on butt of pommel but the bayonet still mounts and dismounts smoothly from the rifle.
11879 M1893 bayonet with scabbard. ARTILLERIA Fca DE TOLEDO 1895 Very early Spanish American war era bayonet. Blade remains unsharpened. All steel parts brown with age and there is some pitting on the hilt. Grips are chipped and gouges with cracks in the left grip but they remain tight and are retained with the original flush rivets. Scabbard is hard like a German S71/84. Fittings are typically loose but in no danger of falling off. Stitching is popped but the back seam is not separating badly.

12114 M1892/93 bayonet. SIMSON & CO. SUHL on ricasso plus inspector's mark on the blade spine. Spanish Cross and sn L7437 on the crossguard. Markings are nice and crsip and the blade remains unsharpened. Tip of blade badly pitted on the left side and the pommel is also badly pitted. Grips are retained by the original rivets but are also badly worn. Still interesting as an unaltered (never re-arsenalled) piece with good markings.

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.
13178 M1943 bayonet with scabbard. German S84/98 pattern with muzzle ring. SN 1427 on right ricasso and script letter "O" on the felspar of the blade.
