    Hi Russellfirm !

    Top to bottom: French, German and Italian.

    French Lebel 1886 model. It should have the maker in script on the top
    of the blade. It looks like it's been cut-down/shortened at some point.

    The German 98/05 is WWI. Italian 1891 Pattern Carcano, I believe
    it is from WWII era.

    Typical to find only a few numbers on the Italian one........
    these are not heavily marked.

    On the German bayonet there should also be a company name stamped
    into the metal on the blade 'flat' or ricasso, near the grip or handle,
    and a date marked on the top of the blade near the crossguard.
    It's possible that they have been ground or polished off.

    WWI German bayonets with a scabbard are normally about $120
    to $150-ish I'd guess, in this condition, However, from closer inspection
    of the photo, this one seems to have homemade wooden grips added
    which reduces the value !

    The French and Italian ones should go for less than above, IMO
    but I am not that familiar with the prices of these.

    Overall condition is important with bayonets. I've based the price on
    what I have seen lately.

    The first could be a german rework? how long is the blade, looks like shortened blade, the second SG98/05 has no origin grips, and the paint of scabbard is strange any stamps on pommel or crossgguard? the last Carcano have a replacement WW1 full metall scabbard.best regards,Andy

    RLM means Reichsluftfahrtministerium

    The maker is CITO-CÍLN, a rare maker.

    It┤s a pitty, that the condition of this 98/05 is such bad ...
