One of the nicest blades I’ve seen on a WWII bayonet. This Mundlos manufacturer coded combat bayonet retains 99.9% of its original bluing on the blade, something not often seen on such a relic. The markings on the blade include “S/244,G” on one side, and “9698” on the other. Although not matching (serial number “7949m”), the scabbard is in excellent condition, with 90 – 95% of its original finish in tact, and barely a scratch to note. The bakelite grips are stunning, with no cracks or chips. The black leather frog is not original to this bayonet, but added to complete the set, and sports the mark of Carl Hepting & Co.
