**MINT**BEST QUALITY**WW2 Era German Army M98 NCO’s Short Dress Bayonet By E.Pack & Sohne Solingen With Stag Antler Scales Secured By Screw Bolts, Scabbard, Leather Frog, Cord & Portepee. Sn 18277:10 - 18277:10
This is a near mint M98 dress bayonet and scabbard. Short 7 ¾” blades were carried by NCO’s while longer blades (9 ¾”) were carried by enlisted personnel (see the book 'German Clamshells' page 15 by Gary L. Walker & R.J. Weinand). The dress sidearm for military and civilian uniformed formations was designated the M98 Dress Bayonet. This bayonet represented a stylised form of the S. 84/98 bayonet purchased by the individual for wear with the walkout dress uniform. This example has a rifle mortise with original green felt insert and push button release (not designed to be fitted to a rifle, the stud button is functional but the mortise was often too small for rifle attachment. Other examples have false stud buttons or no button). It has a clean 7 ¾” blade (12 ½” overall). It has the maker’s name and trademark at the ricasso and is fitted with original leather washer. The cross guard and pommel are nickel plated. The Stag antler grips are undamaged (this is the only dress bayonet with scales secured by original screw bolts rather than the usual rivets). It has its original black military issue scabbard with frog stud. The scabbard is fitted with an original period brown leather frog. There are no date or manufacturer marks on the frog and all leather and stitching are intact. The frog is mounted with green leather NCO’s cord & bullion portepee. The price for this near mint complete Nazi dress bayonet includes UK delivery. Sn 18277:10
