    Thanks for the reply!

    Thing is I don't have any because Im unable to tell the difference. I strictly collect ww1 bayonets. I have like 35 and about half of them are German. but I have no 1884/98's and I've probably missed out on a few thinking there k98's. This is the one bayonet I cannot identify.

    Have a look here

    k98 bayonets data and registry

    This will show all the variations and manufacturers after WW1.

    If no one else does it, I will try to find some information on WW1 versions.

    There are always a little bit difference betwwen the makers...

    but the main difference are

    - shorter fleschguard with a gap on the backside the grips by III. Modell
    - sloted sews und a sloted nut for the retaining pin by III. Modell
    - the point of the blade by n.A. is more drop shaped, by III. Modell more pointed
    - III. Modell is blued
    - differenet stamps and acceptance stamps
