    Greetings CSM Gray,

    Yes as you have alluded, I would suggest posting pictures as one man's dent is another man's severely disfigured bend. That said, the unmarked one sounds the least interesting (at least to me). So it would be a choice between the first two. Based on rarity between the manufacturers you have listed, Stahlblume (probably dated 1916) is the rarer manufacturer between the two you have mentioned. The Ersatz scabbard does add value to the Waffenfabrik Mauser's variant, but the original scabbard paired with this particular manufacturer’s bayo would have been Waffenfabrik Mauser marked too (the only manufacturer to have done so). Spare scabbards for these bayos come up quite often on the 'bay, so sight unseen…I’d recommend Bayonet number one on your list of choices.

    Regards,

    Lance

    Correct leather scabbards are a big bonus.

    Honestly, I'd pass on all three. There are plenty of these bayonets available in far better condition and no point in getting one with condition issues unless you just gotta have one now. Save your money now and spend a little more for a better conditioned one later. Of course if you like "salty, been there items that tell a story" have at it.
