Hi Mustang1, what you have is a WW1 german Ersatz bayonet
Mustang1, brasso37 is quite correct, late war Ersatz all metal bayonet, one of 31 ! types of bayonet the Germans produced during the Great War, see this thread for them all, including yours ...http://warrelics.eu/forum/firearms-o...ww1-kar-45054/
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."
G.W. Steevens - The Daily Mail (1897)
thanks for the info. any idea on value? im thinking if it was 1 of 31 types probably not much. i also have a helmet that is german so i had an idea this bayonet was german as well but with its length wasnt sure cause it was close to the length for a gbr bayonet as well.
