t seems that acasta bayonet was made ​​as a prototype in 1941 by the company Alcoso there a picture in a magazine (Die Klinge - November, 1941). Photograph is not very clear and detailed and was reproduced in Jim Atwood's book, page 205 and Lt. Col.. Tom Johnson's (Julian Milestone collection). It is believed that today there are only two bayonets confirmed as genuine.
Bayonet was not made ​​by Carl Eickhorn or another company or even as a prototype. Bayonet of photos is made in England in the 70s. We know it's a fake if you compare the parts (eagle from stylet diplomatic, guard with oak leaves, used in police bayonets and even Carl Eickhorn logo) are different from the original.
