    Default WW1 Butcher Blade Police Reissue?

    Hi guys, is this a police reissue from after WW1? The bluing(if that is what it is, and not just rust) and crossed out numbers seem to say so, but I'm not sure. Do the crossed out numbers merely mean that it was reissued to another regiment?
    Thanks,
    Eddie

    Numbers on scabbard seem to say:
    S.D.I. 84
    Numbers on cross guard seem to say:
    PB Se(3?) R

    Certainly police re-issue from the post WW1 era.

    Scabbard


    "S. D." = Schutzpolizei Dusseldorf. "I" = Administrative sub-division1 "84" = weapon number.

    The deleted one also looks like a Schutzpolizei marking but I can't read the rest.

    Bayonet

    "P.B" is either Polizei Berlin or Polizeischule Berlin.

    I can't find anything for "P.B. Se" I'm afraid.

    Hope that helps a little.

    Regards

    Wow, great, thanks for the help Richie! So, this would have been a bayonet that was used in WW1, and then one of the few that were allowed to remain in Germany after WW1?

    Yes indeed - WW1 German military issue - then re-used after the war by the Police.

    BTW - the maker Frister & Rossman made sewing machines before the war. The only dated S98-05s they made are from 1917. The company still exists ... making sewing machines !

    Got this in the mail recently, I love it, but unfortunately "Bubba" seems to have gotten a hold of it and decided that it wasn't sharp enough for his tastes. The scabbard has two sets of numbers on it, the scratched out set seems to say
    "SKI 303" and the lower set says "SDI 341" The bayonet itself says PB 358.

    I reckon this is the interpretation of your markings:

    SK - Schutzpolizei Koslin - probably S.K.I.303
    SD - Schutzpolizei Dusseldorf - probably S.D.I.341
    PB - Polizei Berlin or Polizeischule Berlin or Polizeischule Bonn

    I was looking at this blade the other day and wondered about the bluing, it's very thick and "gunky". I think maybe there was an attempt made to reblue this bayonet, along with the sharpening, what do you guys think?
