    #1 - Argentina - these were made in Germany for export.
    #4 - British 1907 pattern for the Lee Enfield of WWI.

    The bayonets pictured are all quite common, and I like
    each and every one of them.........!
    I think he ment to say #3 for the Enfield.

    Thanks a lot for helping me out Walkwolf. I did not expected them to be of great monetary value. I payed a few bottles of vodka for the whole lot. Wonder how a British WW1 Bayo ended up there. Were the Limeys on the Eastern front in WW1?

    for what gun im not sure, my guess is a mauser not sure what gun yugos used
    As for made for yugo yes it was, a pre war bayo and could have been used by the yugo's during the war.
    It very similar to m1924 yugo.

    I fixed my error guys - thanks for catching it.........!

    The British '07 was once a very common item, but it could also have
    been taken as a souvenir by a German soldier in WWI. 40 years
    ago they were readily available over here at $5.00 each.

    I too would have made the trade for a couple
    of bottles of hooch.........!
    Regards,


    Steve.

    The Nr.2 is a normal yugoslavian M1924 bayonet for the yugo M24 rifle, isnt any austrian reworks there, same as i dont know where something bring together cyrilic alphabet with Slovakia? we have latin alphabet, so the other yugo M48 bayonet was made too in Yugoslavia.
