The bottom bayonet is Czechoslovakian...I'm not familiar with the other blades....
first one looks like a czech bayonet !!
The first one is a bayonet for the Austro-Hungarian M95 straight pull Mannlicher Rifle. The maker's mark is for August Bickel - Metallwarenfabrik, Thuringen. On the other side of the blade it has what appears to be the acceptance mark of the Austrian First Republic in use from 1918 to 1934.
The electro-engraved markings on the X-guard are reputed to be Egyptian.
The second is a run of the mill modern Bowie knife, not a bayonet as I am sure you are aware.
And, as Glenn said, the third is a bayonet for a M1924 Czech Mauser with the muzzle ring removed. It was made at the Czechoslovakian arms factory at Brno.
The M1895 is a bulgarian postwar rework, certainly the maker is not confirmed as Bickel, more real are other maker of Austria, the czechoslovak Vz.24 is too in reworked condition.
Here is a link that we use on the K98 forum that has a few lists of codes and Ordnance numbers to identify the lettering seen on the ricasso and scabbard throat area. http://www.warrelics.eu/forum/k98-ba...d-rbnr-233978/

Yes the rework was done post WW2, the AB remain problematic, Antony Carter added this link to August Bickel, but the firm didnt have a large production prior late 1918 and the AB bayonets were made since 1916, there are some other reasons to believe this connection is not correct.
This the link that I was using for the August Bickel translation:
Are you sure it was listed by Carter? Or was it John Walter?
Larry, how does the Sg84/98 Type III marking link work in this case? Don't get me wrong, it is good for what it is but has no connection to the Austro-Hungarian M1895 bayonet.
