#G2289 Matching K98k Code 44pyy Bayonet
Original WWII German K98k bayonet manufactured by Berg & Co. in late 1944. Berg & Co. used the maker code “agv” from 1941 to 1944. In 1944 the production blocks no letter, A, B, C, are coded 44agv, and most of the D, E, F blocks are coded “44pyy”. 44pyy is the least produced and rarest 1944 bayonet code. Berg and Co kept up with high quality blue and polish making them harder to find in nice condition. This example is factory matching numbers with original bluing and unsharpened blade, in good field used condition showing some spots of combat wear and corrosion to the fragile early quality bluing. Very scarce code that is almost never offered for sale on dealer sites. $900

#G2290 Matching K98k Code 43-44asw Split Bayonet
Original WWII German K98k bayonet manufactured by E.u.F Hörster in early 1944. This is an uncommon “split” bayonet because the bayonet is “43asw” and scabbard is “44asw”. The split code isn’t from switching years, but a random anomaly likely from a broken die that occurs for approximately 70,000 pieces. The bayonet and scabbard are factory matching numbers, and they have been together forever. This example is matching numbers with original bluing and unsharpened blade, in excellent just lightly used condition. Scarce. $450

#G2295 1939 K98k Bayonet Set
Original WWII German K98k bayonet set. Excellent condition, non-matching example. The bayonet itself is a 1939 W.K.C. (Weyersberg, Kirschbaum & Cie, Solingen) and the scabbard is a 1939 Berg & Co. All parts have the original early war quality bluing, the blade is nice and never sharpened. Good set. $160

#RG48 Matching 1935 Elite Diamante K98k Bayonet with Tropical Frog
Original WWII German K98k bayonet with tropical / canvas frog. Early 1935 manufactured bayonet code S/185G for Elite Diamante. The bayonet and scabbard are both original factory numbered '4177' 'd'.  Overall very good condition, the blade has strong bluing and has not been sharpened. The grips are wartime arsenal replacements, it is typical to find some arsenal replacement parts on equipment that was in service sine the mid 1930's. Scabbard is mounted in a rare canvas frog, this type of frog was used in Africa and other tropical regions, and even saw more widespread use later in the war due to leather shortages.  The tropical frog is wartime original to the bayonet based on the perfectly matching wear visible in hand. A great genuine set that has likely seen lots of action, it's very rare to find any 1935 manufactured matching K98k bayonet and Elite Diamante is a desirable maker. $550

#RG94 Personalized K98k Bayonet
Original WWII German K98k personalized bayonet with photo of a German soldier under custom acrylic canopy glass made from downed aircraft. The practice of making clear grips from canopy glass was most commonly done by US soldiers who started out by making sweetheart grips for their pistols. The base bayonet for this set is a mid-war example maker marked "42.cul" (year and maker's code) and the scabbard is non-matching with only the number "17" on it. The bayonet's blade is in excellent condition, never sharpened, and all metal parts retain their original factory bluing.
