The scabbard retains much of its original black paint and has a single frog stud. The scabbard is fitted with its WW2 era British green webbing bayonet frog with integral belt loop. The eyelets of the bayonet frog have been contemporaneously adapted to fit the stud on the scabbard. The scabbard fits snugly into the frog (some examples of adapted scabbards and bayonet frogs for FS daggers are shown in Chapter 14 of Flook’s book).
