14289 P1887 MkIII bayonet with scabbard. VR 2/94 with Nigari script on crossguard and frogstud. Has the typical WD and X bend mark on the opposite ricasso with "R.P.12.97" below parallel to the crossguard.
13391 M1895 Infantry NCO bayonet with scabbard and frog. OEWG. Hooked quillon. Blade remains unsharpened but tip has been repointed. Scabbard is an Artillery carbine bayonet scabbard that was cut shorter for this bayonet and was left open with no tip added.
13870 Dutch M4 bayonet with scabbard and integral frog for US M1 carbine
13871 M1895 KNIL ENGINEERS CARBINE bayonet with scabbard and frog. HEMBRUG ricasso mark and K.A.R. marked on both the pommel and crossguard. Contrary to the name this bayonet fits the full length M95 rifle and NOT the series of carbines. I do not have the specific carbine cited in the name to test fit but all the other Dutch carbines/bayonets are not interchangeable with the rifles/bayonets.
14024 M1895 Artillery Carbine bayonet with scabbard and frog. HEMBRUG Retaining strap on the frog has the button end broken off and the buttonhole on the other end is broken open. There is a nip out of the leather pocket on the bottom of the left side.
14025 M1895 No.1 NM Carbine bayonet with scabbard and frog. HEMBRUG
14149 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. The retaining strap button is also very unique. I suspect them to be colonial replacements and Indonesian in particular but have no solid evidence.
13149 No. 4 MkII spike bayonet with scabbard. Savage. Electro-pencilled N/|\Z marked with NZ serial number actually stamped in.
14319 Leather and Brass retaining tab for No4 scabbards in P37 frogs. Brass rivet buckle closure.

13341 M1884 Jarmann Cruciform bayonet. Serial number 9.
13592 M1944 Krag bayonet with scabbard. EXCELLENT PLUS CONDITION. Only 4,600 were made in Sweden for the Norwegian Government In Exile. Ricasso marked E.A.B. over sn 2910 and finial ball on the scabbard marked 154.

13780 M1957 bayonet with scabbard. This is the former German S84/98 bayonet converted to M1 Garand by Norway. Bayonet was originally an S245G and scabbard was CLEMEN & JUNG 1939. Blade remains unsharpened.
13784 M1894/12 LONG LEATHER scabbard and frog only. Estimated production was only 3,000 for the original long M1894 bayonet with fullers running the full length of the blade. Will also fit on the M1916 bayonet. Low serial number is 865. Has a tear near the tip but the leather is not separating at all. Stitching remains tight and leather is still supple.
14014 M1916 bayonet with scabbard. FULL LENGTH. Janzen originally identified it as "M1894/14" and corrected it in his end notes. Blade partially sharpened near the tip but not ground.

PAPAL STATES (VATICAN)
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.
14344 Argentine M1891 bayonet with scabbard with blade SHORTENED to 233mm. Scabbard shortened correspondingly and painted white. 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.
14166 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.
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.
12762 WZ28 bayonet with scabbard. FB RADOM. See listing under SPAIN
13908 WZ28 bayonet with scabbard. FB RADOM 1939 EMERGENCY PRODUCTION. No flashguard. German captured and blued (The original Polish finish was phosphate), forward half of blade was arsenal sharpened before the bayonet was blued. The scabbard is also blued and has the German throatscrew modification. Otherwise the bayonet has not been tampered with and the muzzle ring remains intact. Hilt and scabbard have a few specks of rust, pitts and dings here and there but overall condition is solidly GOOD. I believe the German nomenclature for this is S28p.
13015 M1937 bayonet with scabbard. Unsharpened blade.
13016 M1937 bayonet. Unsharpened blade.
13358 M1904 Mauser-Verguero bayonet. VCS (VC SCHILLING) ricasso mark. Unsharpened blade. Remains finished bright with rivet retained grips and not rehabbed and blued like the vast majority are. Rare maker and even more rare to find in original finish and configuration.
13569 M1937 bayonet. Unsharpened blade.

13874 PM35 bayonet with scabbard SIMSON & CO. SUHL

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.

13227 M1893 bayonet. OEWG. Pitted pommel and crossguard. Blade ground.
14043 M1893 bayonet with scabbard and frog. Frog may or may not be correct, I have no idea. Blade slightly warped to the right but scabbard insertion is not affected. Blade has been sharpened and there are some light grinding striations as well as some pitting in the fullers.
RUSSIA and SOVIET UNION

12756 Ob. 91/28 PANSHIN cruciform socket bayonet with integral sight hood. TULA star. Sight hood is loose due to being cracked through the mounting screw hole but it is not in danger of falling off or cracking/spreading more.
13478 Ob. 1891 cruciform socket bayonet. Socket battered up and has been bubba fitted. Locking ring very loose and sloppy. Bayonet mounts and dismounts easily as a result. Blade has a slight bend to the left near the socket but it would not show up in the pictures. Tip has a ding or chip in it. Elbow of socket also has a burr.

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.

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.
14206 M1899C (M1915) Double edged bayonet. Maker mark removed from ricasso and bayonet blued. Grips retained with domed rivets and crossguard retaining pins extend in the Austro/Czech fashion.
14250 M1899 bayonet. SIMSON & CO. SUHL This is the single edged fullered blade type that is often mistaken for a Spanish M1893 bayonet. Blade remains completely unsharpened. Hilt pitted but serviceable.
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.
13263 M1920 "Pussycat" bayonet with scabbard. Former British P1907 sold to Siam and marked with the Tiger's head on the ricasso with a Siamese serial number. Round button scabbard has not been converted to all steel as most were. The leather bears no readable markings. There is a sewn repair in the scabbard leather near the tip. The grips are badly worn with substantial wood loss. Blade sharpened but not ground.
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.
14239 T51 bayonet with scabbard. For T47 short rifle. T30 style hilt with M1 style blade. Grips retained with Japanese style screws in elyptical escutcheons. Blade remains unsharpened. For T47 Short Rifle so I suspect the T51 nomenclature is not correct.
14240 T51 bayonet with scabbard. T30 style hilt with M1 style blade. Grips retained with German style slotless screwbolts in spanner nuts. Blade remains unsharpened. 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 god for someone with the rifle that wants a bayonet without breaking the bank.
12569 No.9 bayonet with scabbard. For No.4 Enfield rifles.
13719 P1907 bayonet with almond stud scabbard. SANDERSON 3/18? South African "Broad Arrow inside letter U" on the left side of the pommel. Front of scabbard throatpiece lip marked "X27"
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.

12762 Spanish reissued Polish WZ28 bayonet with Blank German made S84/98 scabbard. FB RADOM. Spain regripped these after removing the flashguards. They arsenal buffed the entire bayonet and scabbard and heavily blued the scabbard. Blade remains unsharpened. The scabbard is completely devoid of any markings. The Spanish also added a leather washer at the base of the blade.

13040 M1893 straightback bayonet with scabbard. Span Am issue date. ARTILLERIA FCA DE TOLEDO 1898
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.

13877 M1892/93 Humpback bayonet.
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.
13966 M1893 Straightback bayonet with scabbard. RARE WEYERSBERG KIRSCHBAUM & CO. SOLINGEN manufacturer ricasso marking. Has original domed rivet grip retainers and shows signs of stone sharpening having been done long ago. Grips have some rough spots shown in the pictures. Pommel has slight hammering with light mushrooming on the edges but function is not affected. This is only the second one of these I have seen in the past 40 years. I have spent the past 15 years searching for these intensely after the first one went missing in the mail.

14372 M1906 sawback bayonet with scabbard and frog. Rare bayonet made with a recycled Vetterli sawback blade marked SJG NUEHAUSEN with new hilt for the Schmidt-Rubin series of rifles. This one has the small MRID for use with K11 Carbines and K31 Short rifles but they may also be found with larger MRID for use with full length rifles. Scabbard is brown leather with bright steel fittings and is a later production type for these and M1914 bayonets as opposed to a recycled Vetterli scabbard. I can't make out the manufacturer's name or cantonal marks on the frog but it is clearly dated 1927. Hilt is plated. This was an authorized modification that could be done at the expense of the individual soldier so he could avoid having to constantly polish the hilt for inspection.
