Any ideas what this 98k frog is?

Article about: I have no idea how it happened to be on this bayonet (certainly not saying it's right), that was the point of the thread, to try to make sense of it.

    S 84/98 were used after the WWII in much east European states, also in Bulgaria.

    When it comes to collecting bayos and daggers...along the way at some point between then and now..there are possibilities of it being upgraded..or just added on to make it look good. Hard to say what happened when. We see alot of this with dagger scabbards being switched out. IMO ..it is possible 2 period items came together..but not knowing when exactly. This has been a good thread

    To add to the above and what Sleepwalker said, all sorts of combinations are seen and some are period, and some are not. With no U.S. GI's in that area such a pairing has never been seen in a GI bring back that I have ever seen myself, or reported by reasonably well informed specialist U.S. based collectors to the best of my recollection - so I think that we may have to look to more recent importations stretching back over many years for some things, and more recently for others. But I don't disagree that Eastern Europe as a whole saw an infusion of German weapons as the result of WW II. Which in the case of Bulgaria seems to have been of a somewhat limited nature as it regarded certain types of arms. With for instance a photo that I recall of of a mixed group of Bulgarian men and women Communist partisans seen in all different kinds of dress (parts of uniforms and what seems to be civilian clothing items). With an admixture of mostly Mannlcher type weapons including an identifiable Mauser rifle (no doubt taken from the Germans). But as a standard issue weapon versus a more recent battlefield acquisition I think it's going to take some more proof. Best regards to all, Fred
