    Nice one TC. Combat K98 with this sort of patina are my favourite. Blade looks worn but clean. Even without the provenance of someone's Dad or grandfather brought it back, it has the look of a veteran souvenir. Just the sort of thing an allied soldier would claim after disarming a prisoner in 1944 or '45. And the age looks like it could have been carried from Russia to France. As you say, if only they could talk!

    TC there will be a Waffenamt mark under the flashguard which should match the mark on the hilt. There will be assembly marks and numbers under the grip plates. But be very careful not to damage the screw crossheads if you take a look. nothing worst than seeing a K98 with savaged screwheads.

    Without taking one apart to verify, speaking generally circa 1940 the grips internally will not only have the same Waffenemts, but also be numbered to match. The flashguard also numbered etc. Or not, because the Germans did perform overhauls with some bayonets depending on the time period, and whomever performed the work - the other variable being the maker. Best Regards, Fred

    Found these photos showing the sort of markings you might find. Different bayonets - not mine.
