This bayonet has been in the family for over 50 years, it was retrieved while my father-in-law's dad was serving under Patton in north Africa during WW2 off of deceased German troops.
I recently took it to a gun and knife show to see if anyone could identify it, and multiple people said it didn't look like a weapon from WW2; but it did look like possibly and Austrian bayonet from WW1. I was thinking possibly that it was handed down to the deceased German soldier sometime in his life, and he had brought it to war, and then it had gotten retrieved by my father-in-law's dad.
I don't have that great of a camera, but hopefully you can get a decent idea of what it looks like. I cannot find any markings on it, but it measures out to be 28" total with a 22.5" blade.
Thanks in advance for any help.
I just noticed a partial marking on the blade that I hadn't noticed before. It is very worn, but I can make out half of it, it has a circle around it and the last two letters are "D.L"; I will see if I can get a decent picture of the marking uploaded.
