    Default "Crank Handle" Bayonet

    A guy walks into the office today to show me this. From researching these boards I know a little about it. From what I understand these are heavily faked. This one is missing the rivet at the throat of the scabbard which I understand means that it is somewhat dubious. This is not my area of collecting, and a little knowledge is dangerous, so opinions are welcome.

    Best Regards,

    Andy

    Looks to have honest age to it. Pity it has been cleaned.

    Cheers, Ade.

(before I got it !)
    Prost ! Steve.

    "The German Army is the perfectly adapted, perfectly running Machine. The difference is that the Germans are organised with a view to War...with the cold, hard, practical and business-like purpose of winning victories."
