**Saipan Found** WWII U.S.M.C. M1942 Pattern M1 Garand Bayonet & Scabbard. 21407. - 21407
This bayonet and scabbard were found on the island of Saipan (Saipan was under Spanish sovereignty from 1565 to 1899 and came under German rule from 1899 to 1914. It was made a Japanese mandate in 1920. During World War II the successful U.S. led Allied invasion and capture of the island (June–July 1944) was one of the fiercest land battles in the Pacific theatre) where it was being used by a local farmer to chop wood for kindling. Despite initial setbacks, the M1905 bayonet was manufactured in sufficient numbers to keep up with the widespread introduction of the new M1 Garand rifle in 1942. By the end of 1942, all six manufacturers had changed the shape of their fullers to a narrower, round-bottomed shape. The later version of the M1905 bayonet with plastic grips is sometimes referred to as the "M1942" by collectors and historians. This is a WII M1942 Bayonet (see White & Watts ‘The Bayonet Book’ item 927 pages 412). The 16” long steel blade with fullers is stamped 1942 *obscured*. The correct plastic grips are correctly held by a single screw- minor movement in the crossguard. The plastic has knocks, bumps and bruises to be expected. The bayonet has the correct press button at the cross guard which releases the locking catch on the rifle and also holds the bayonet firmly in the scabbard. The scabbard is the M3 plastic variant with ignited grenade ‘US’ (army) mark on the throat mount. The throat has the correct double hook belt bar. The price includes U.K. delivery. 21407.

*Good Condition* German WWII Dated S84/98 III Bayonet with Scabbard and Leather Frog. 11523:4. - 11523:4
The Seitengewehr 84/98 was the most widely issued German bayonet of the Second World War. It was used in conjunction with the Karabiner 98k rifle. It was a development of a design which had first been introduced before the First World War, for use by machine-gunners and cyclists. Initially these bayonets were produced by modifying obsolete Model 71/84 bayonets. However, during the First World War production of new S84/98 bayonets took place, as they were simple to manufacture and used less metal than the standard S98 bayonet. The adoption of the K98k rifle in 1934 prompted the manufacture of quantities of an improved S84/98. This example was made by Waffenfabrik Carl Eickhorn Solingen (In 1865 Eickhorn was founded by Carl Eickhorn in Solingen. The company is famous for their combat and rescue knives. Until the end of the 19th century Eickhorn was known all over the world. The huge factory was partly destroyed during the second world war and rebuilt in the following years. ‘cof 42’ which is stamped clearly to one side of the blade which is in very good condition, the number ‘009’ and ‘C’ is to the other.

The leather frog is immaculate and has a makers mark which is illegible and is in equally good order with a nice patina and all stitching and metalwork in place.

*Very Good Condition* German WWI M1898/05 ‘Butcher Bayonet’ Earlier First Pattern Scabbard and Leather Frog. 11523:2. - 11523:2
The Bayonet M1898/05 should succeed the M1898 long bayonet. It had a much stronger design but was still very long. In the beginning of the Great War it came with high ears and without flash guard. From 1915 the M1898 ‘New Pattern’ were missing the ‘ears’ and is characterised by the addition of a thin sheet of steel as muzzle fire protection on top of the grip. The original German First World War butcher blade bayonet was used with the Mauser Gewehr 98 (GEW 98) the standard issue service rifle of Imperial Germany. This example was manufactured by ‘ERFURT’ (the Royal Prussian Army works at Erfurt in Prussian Thuringia. The Royal Prussian armoury had been established at Erfurt in 1862. Their marking had the Royal Prussian crown above the word Erfurt) as stamped on one side of the ricasso. The top of the spine is stamped with a date code ‘W 15’ (1915) and inspection stamps. The wooden grips are held with two studs and are undamaged only showing minor signs of use related wear. The earlier first pattern steel scabbard throat carries the Royal Cypher of Kaiser Wilhelm II, King of Prussia above the date stamp '08 (1908) and a crowned acceptance stamp) is showing signs of age related wear *see images* the leather, stitching and metalwork are all intact. See ‘White & Watts’ The bayonet Book, pages 114 & 123, No 267. The price includes UK postage and packing. 11523:2. (Box 3)
