    Very pretty. The crossguard looks so elegant for some reason.

    Very nice - quite a rare unit mark I suspect.

    "The German Army is the perfectly adapted, perfectly running Machine. The difference is that the Germans are organised with a view to War...with the cold, hard, practical and business-like purpose of winning victories."

    Hi, nice bayonet and scabbard. I haven't seen many with Armee Korps markings - most are marked to regiments. Mine has a B.A. XIX.13. crossguard marking with the manufacture date machined off and 53.R.R.15.49 marked on the scabbard. Terry

    hate to pointlessly resurrect an old thread, but this one is simply STUNNING, Bill.

    Would look great in my collection too, if you ever decide to part with it

    I know mate, but to coin one of your phrases "I had to get my 50 cents worth in"

    I wouldn't say it's one of "my" phrases per se, and the phrase you're looking for is "get my .02 cents in".

    And 50 cent is some clown that rhymes in gibberish while wearing funny clothes, mate.

    And I'm still 1st on that bayo list
