German ww2 Items found in a U.S. estate

Article about: These items were recently found in the estate of a deceased US soldier. The gentleman served through WWII. The pieces feel like aluminum to me....would that be correct? Do they appear authen

    Hello LeAnn,
    This knot is not meant for a bayonet. This is not a "Troddel", but a "Faustriemen" meant for a saber....This is not the first time i see this configuration anyway. IMO you should not split the set...if it wasn't done by a german soldier, it could have been done by the vet who captured it....
    Thanks

    Hi LeAnn, "BO" is the marking for SA Gruppe Bayerische Ostmark, so the dagger came from Bavaria or Austria.

    Cheers, Ade.

    If any for sale, place them in for sale section, I think our members would like to spend some money for that!

    They are for sale - but not online. They go to public auction on June 20, my company is called Stokes Auction. My intent of posting was not to advertise the items but to find out information about them. I would love to see the items go to a collector and anyone interested can contact me directly for information.
