    They are all original bayonets with completely false etchings/markings added.

    Value - to me as a collector = nil.

    Regards

    Its such a shame that someone felt the need to tamper with these bayonets

    Hi Jacob sorry to say that it is true what Richie and Vicky above had said.Agreed they were worth more before in the condition they were in.
    If you look at the quality and condition of the etching for #1 is that it does not match the condition of the bayos at all. The etchings are too clean and neat. Also #2..is that these bayos are meant for battle and not for dress. Even clean looking dress bayonets with etchings can be questionable,,unless a trained eye is looking at them. The Himmler inscription is the best one yet which never happened at all. Good eyes Richie and Vicky and thank you Jacob for posting these photos as they will be useful tools to help the new collector.
    These photos could possible be included in both threads ,,Near Perfect Reproductions and the Worst of the Worst threads" Regards Larry

    I will wait for other comments before reposting them.

    Have a close look at the swastikas and note how poorly etched they are. Thats just for starters.

    I would assume, that the webbing frog is as fake as the bayonets judging from its as-new condition.
