    I cant tell, does the blood groove go to the tip of the blade or not? The grip eagle is a later production wide-winged example which might be a period replacement if this is a Weimar era produced bayonet. The frog is not proper for a Police bayonet, it should be patent leather & the heavier variety as opposed to those seen on fireman's bayonets. Nice example either way.

    Default Re: Stag Police Bayo opinions needed..UPDATE

    UPDATE!!
    Hi All, Got my bayo today and took some better photos, its definatly been cleaned up at some point but it is still a very nice piece, I will point out some new things about it, its non slotted, I found some more markings on it, a 147 on the scabbard top and side blade, and a few inspection marks, I believe these marks were done after the rework/reissue of shortening the blade to 13 inches amongst other 1936/37 regulations for this piece, also I read that alot of policemen would use the head as a hammer when putting up signs and such, so alot of them have hammer marks on the head or sides, I took a look and what do you know, marks on the head that look alot like someone banged a nail with it! besides all that the detail is really nice esp the eagle, I love the stag grips, the scabbard is a bit worn but it just adds charecter and the frog is well worn, either original to the bayo or replaced at some point but it is dated 1937 so thats a good sign, thanks for looking and helping, I love the ride of aquiring a new piece and learning from it and about it. I also love how much some pieces can tell a story when looking at it from top to bottom, I'm sure you all understand
