    Default Chromed bayonet id please?

    This is another one from my family things...picked up by my Dad growing up in Germany,its pretty beaten up however the blade is really shinny and well preserved.The markings on the blade seem to be half faded which makes so I assume it had been chromed(unless this is a dress bayonet)...|I was wondering what people think is it WW2? is it German? As always any help is always appreciated.

    It appears to be a German made bayonet for export. Other
    members will know which country issued these.

    Perhaps it has been chromed, but from the pics
    it looks highly polished.........
    Regards,

    By export you mean chromed and sold to occupying soldiers?

    No - not chromed, but for use in some other countries military force
    - possibly Czech or Turkish. If it has a chromed finish blade
    it was done postwar, IMO.........

    Polish Fabryka Broni Radom bayonet - W.P stands for Wojsko Polskie - Polish Army.
    Much more valuable than K98 :-)
    Yours seen better days, but you can easily get around $200 for it.
    Looking for following WWII German items:
    - anything dealing with Allenstein (Olsztyn) and Wehrkreis I in East Prussia,
    - entrenching tool carrier (straight and folding),
    - forestry and hunting items,

    Anything related to the II RP or Second Polish Republic 1918-1939 is expensive. Most of the military equipment was destroyed by the Germans and Russians or in some cases reused/modified.

    I have tried taking better pictures,maybe on the week end outside during the day...I still think the blade has been treated,either chromed or nickle coated.this thing is so beaten up but the blade really shines and the manufactures marks are hard to read...I wonder if this is a German re-issue. Although its really worn out,the left overs of a number/letters appear to be on the hilt, they are barely visible...see the shot below.

    The reissue would have the loop cut off to make the "ears".
    Basically it would look like k98 bayonet.
