Matchiing K98 rough condion example

Article about: The correct description I believe is M1884/98 III. Pretty rough condition but does matching numbers. Was it normal to find the blade dated 1940 and the scabbard dated 41 to have matching num

    The correct description I believe is M1884/98 III. Pretty rough condition but does matching numbers. It also looks like the scabbard screw may be a replacement as the bluing looks very good compared the overall condition. It was stored in the frog which is junk and famous blood staining on the blade, (Really just damage from poor storage as I do not believe in blood staining; call me a skeptic.) All opinions and education are appreciated.

    Am I missing something??
    The blade and scabbard are marked 40.

    No you are not Phil. You were too quick on the reply before I edited. I was thinking about a different one than I posted.

    Big dent Andy. Has anyone had any luck with removing dent in scabbards? The runners that hold the blade are in the way to do any serious work.

    There was a special tool the German armourers had to repair such dents. But rarely seen today.

    You might go down to your local "paintless dent repair" shop that pops hail dents and assorted dings out of cars and ask them if they think they can pop it out.

    You remove the screw and the throat/runners will come out. With some effort. Rawhide mallet taps on the exposed edge of the throat.

    Find a wooded dowel/stake that is the diameter of the throat and tap it down the scabbard to lift/raise the metal.

    I take it that is why the blade is not inserted all the way in the scabbard?


    Just my 2 centavos.

    Edit: Was typing my reply and Just saw Todd's reply. Not a bad idea. Let a pro do it, But you will need to remove the throat/runners first,
