    You found that in a dump !

    That is a German S98-05 first pattern bayonet - standard German WW1 bayonet.

    There might be a date on the back of the blade - 15 or 16 perhaps ?

    Good looking bayonet - the leather scabbard has shrunk which is why the bayonet does not go all the way in.

    Regards

    Excellent find! Also the bayonet frog and troddel is a nice bonus!
    It's a S98/05aA bayonet, or first model "Butchersknife" as it's called unofficially... You can find the year of production on the back of the blade. The S98/05 aA was produced from 1905 till 1915.
    Between the S98/05 aA and the S98/05 nA They also produced a few transitional models during a short period. The difference between the S98/05 aA and the S98/05 nA is easy to spot... The aA has no Shutzblech to protect the grips against the muzzle flash and has the long "ears" (half muzzlering). The S98/05 nA models have a Schutzblech and short "ears".
    From 1915 on the scabbard was also produced completely in steel, instead of the weaker leather ones like yours.
    S98/05 aA = Seitengewehr model 1898/1905 alter Art = bayonet model 1898/1905 old type
    S98/05 nA = Seitengewehr model 1898/1905 neuer Art = bayonet model 1898/1905 new type

    Trivia: Before the S98/05 nA was introduced, the plain back version was identified as the S98/05 or S98/05 o.S. (ohne Säge - without saw) and the saw back as the S98/05 S or S98/05 m.S. (mit Säge - with saw).

    I hope this can help you in some way...
