    Default Inadvertant Bayonet Collector ....More Bayonets Come My Way! What are they?

    Never having been an edged weapon collector I have today become one.
    This group of bayonets was given to me for display in my office. The dear old wife would not want them at home!

    I of course can identify that some of them are British because of the crows foot and there is one stamped US with a flaming bomb but the rest are mysterious things to me.

    Any help with putting a correct label on to them would be appreciated and an indication of the rarity would also help.

    Many thanks in anticipation
    Doug

    Hello 4md,
    thank you for your prompt reply.
    1 is marked MOLE 1907 on the blade and KRF R1551 on the pommel
    3 has Arabic writing on the blade
    7 has something like: Mse d Ormes de St Etienne Mars 1879 engraved on the back of the blade
    9 has Hackman & Co on the side of the blade
    11 has some sort of Siamese script on it
    Hope this helps

    All the best
    Doug

    4md, Pete, that is great work, Thank you very much.
    I only need to track down the No3 with the Arabic writing and I have them all.
    I will get some oil on them and whack them up in my office.
    All the best

    No 3 is a Turkish Model 1903 for the Mauser rifle.

    These were made in Germany and the Arabic [possibly Osmanli] writing is the manufacturers name.

    Turkish Model 1903 bayonet with scabbard (WEA 92)

    The blade is similar to that of the German S98.

    A lot of these were shortened so the full length one is relatively unusual.

    Turkish weapons of the period
