Even though it isn't in great shape, it is a fairly uncommon find. Erfurt manufactured the blade and Heller made the finished bayonet. There was a lot of cooperative effort in the manufacturing of WWI bayonets. The larger manufactures supplied a lot of blades to the smaller firms. In this case I don't think there will be a date on the blade.
Thanks Jim, you say right, no date on the spine...
not often seen like that.
