Below are pics of a WW1 German saw blade bayonet I have. It has been in storage quite a long time. I'm new to this forum and would appreciate any information on it. The markings I believe show it to be made in 1905. Also what its dollar value might be (I'm not looking to sell it; just curious). According to family lore, the bayonet has been in the family a very long time. My great-uncle was a very well-known orchestra leader who toured Europe during the middle and late 1920's (this is fact).
The family story is that he picked up the bayonet in Germany during one of his trips, and later gave it to my father. Don't know if that is true, but I do know that it has been in my family for longer than me (I'm in my 60's).
Any additional information about it, and what army unit used it, would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
