    Early bayonet by Paul Weyersberg, made in 1935. Looks like the blade may of been sharpened though which is a shame (I might be wrong and maybe it's just the way the light is showing on the pic?).
    The scabbard is a 1944 made example by Ernst Pack & son.

    Thanks for the info. It's always good to have all the information possible on any relic.

    As Time bandit said, early Weyersberg with late Pack scabbard. Both look to have been heavily cleaned and blade sharpened, but should still go nicely in a display. Any chance of getting some better pictures of the frog?

    Thanks. I'll take some more closeups of the frog plus some photos of another 98K bayonet I have that has no scabbard or frog.

    Okay, here are the photos as promised.
    The frog has the number 0/0836/0013 imprinted on the back. The bayonet has 9823/5 on one side and, as far as I can tell, RICHAHERDER on the other. Input, etc?

    On your Rich A Herder bayonet the '5' will be a 'b' (top part is a bit worn), the serial number of the bayonet will be 9823 b. If you look on the spine of the bayonet you should see a date stamped,for example, '37' or '38' etc.

    The frog I can't really help with as whilst I collect the bayonets I don't usually bother with the frogs. The number on it is an 'RB' number which is like a later war version of the makers code and that's as much as i can say about it.

    Here are two more pics of the baynet that has no scabbard. I found the 38 stamped on the spine and I also found something else which I can't make out. Any ideas?

    Yep, it's the WaA inspectors stamp. I can't make out the number in the picture but it more than likely will be WaA253 which was the one on most (all?) the bayonets made in the Solingen area at the time that bayonet was made in 1938. If you have a look on the pommel and the release button there should be stamps there also if they've not been worn away.

    Thanks for the extra pictures! Looks like a nice, late war frog. I haven't seen many rough leather frogs with the finished leather straps, I like it!
