    Default German WW1 Bayonets

    I picked up some what appear to be Ersatz bayonets in a trade; wondering if I can get an opinion on them. The first one is a crank handle style, but it did not have a scabbard. Wondering how much that diminishes the value and collectability? The other one is what I think is a EB23, it has "88" stamped on the hilt. Does this mean it is for a Gew 88? The frog and scabbard are in good shape but the blade is rough with the tip broken off and some dings in the blade (looks like saw some action). Curious what the value of this would be in this condition; the frogs are quite collectable?

    Crank handle appears to be made by Demag - and it's considered a fighting knife
    over a bayonet. The leather sheath has been heavily modified, and the bayonet
    is in rough shape, but still ok. Price will be affected by the lack of a
    scabbard for the knife, but one could be found for it.........
    Regards,


    Steve.

    So any ideas what a fair price would be to ask for these items? I am probably going to try and flog them on CGN.
