    Default m1899 bayonets

    I recently came across 2 m1899 bayonets with the at3 markings. Both have matching scabbard and have the frogs. one is serial number 870 and the other is 1261. both are in very good condition. question is, I want to sell one of them, which should I sell and how much should I ask. They are the double edged bayonet. I would almost say they are mint. On the back side of the guard, there is a letter c in both crossguards, opposite side of the serial numbers. Would these be considered yugoslavian because of the Kraiyervac arsenal stamp? I will submit pics tomorrow if anyone is interested in seeing one of these or both. Pretty neat. I was happy to see these as I never seen one before.

    Any input would be nice if anyone knows much about these bayonets.

    Jep, it is a nice pair of Yugoslavian interwar bayos

    This model is based on some pre-1WW serbian ancient-looking double-edged kindjal bayonet.

    I donīt know about the price but I belive its not low

    Am I right with the m1899? I am not sure exactly what the name of this bayo is... Thanks for the replies.
    Anyone know of a fair price. The one closest to this I found had just the bayonet, no scabbard or frog, they wanted $200. If that is the case for these bayo's, I might as well keep them both. I need some advice... Does the low serial numbers have any significance?

    The M1899 is generic name in reality the serbian M1899 is other modell, but this doubble edged bayonet is generic bayonet for the serbian rifle M1899, majority of literature of this type is wrong, both bayonets are reworks made post 1923(when AT3) by Kragujevac, the scabbards are M1895 diverted, the frogs are too probably from other country?. best regards,Andy
