    Adept.....not IMO WW1 German, all Imperial models had six rivets connecting the blade to th shaft, not nine as yours shows. Their were three models used by the German army prior to and during WW1, models 1874, 1898/9 and the 1898/1909, all with six rivets, however post war upto 1938 the rivets were changed to nine weld points, in 1938 a new model was introduced, I have no information on that model, as Third Reich items are not my bag, perhaps another member can illuminate us. I would think it possible that a postwar manufacturer would possibly use rivets instead bolts...but i cannot be sure, hope thar helps.

    ok thank you for this info. if it helps, this shovel is aprox 204mm/204mm so it is kind of a square.

    does anyone else like to share their opinion ?
