    Default DDR bayonet AKM Type 1 - verify

    Greetings to all!

    I recently acquired what seems to be an East German DDR AKM Type 1 bayonet.
    The rubber insulator has the 5998 number.
    The bayonet itself (the blade and hilt) has the serial number HG 7920, and the number 6 or 9 on the back od the hilt. Inside the grip is the letter (N) or (Z), and on the ricasso proof mark - rectangle K5.
    The scabbard has no visible markings nor serial number except for two proof marks - letter (B) on one side, and something similar to letter E on the other side.

    Is it a legit East German bayonet? From what I could find out, it seems to be the case.
    Also, is it normal to have the serial number electropenciled not on the ricasso, but at the end of the grip?
    And is there such a thing as matching numbers for the Type 1 bayonet or no?

    Any help is appreciated.

    It is DDR, it's normal to have the SN electropenciled in this position.
