    Picked this dress bayonet up the other day at some point in time someone has added a badge to the grip, the badge is not glued on I can just see a very fine pin at the back of the eagles head going into the grip.

    Hi Z4...interestingly the badge looks brand new compared to the condition of the bayo. Just my opinion..but wait for the bayo guys to chime in. Could you take an additional photo of a side view of the medal to see the application if possible?? Regards Larry

    The grip rivets look nice and untouched. I would say the only way that you would know for sure, is to pack to the dentist next time you go and see if they will take an x-ray. If both pins are bent over under the grip, you've probably got a winner. If the pins go straight in with no bend, it was added later.

    I don't think I can get an x-ray the badge does move slightly so the pin or pins cant be glued they must be riveted over or something, the picture below shows the gap where the paper is behind the top and bottom of the badge so it either has one larger pin or two smaller ones near the center of the badge.

    There is real examples of this type bayonet. This one looks like it has a good chance of being real.

    It is a interesting looking dress bayonet.
    Just curious but shouldn't the rivets be domed on both sides?

    The obverse (front) side will have the domed side of the rivet, because it looks nicer. The reverse will almost always be flat, though that was subjective to how the manufactures press was set up or whether it was finished by hand. Some would be a little rounded on the edges, but no where near as domed as the front. A good way to tell if the grips have been off is if there are sloppy, off centered, or multiple strikes on the back side of the rivets.

    Grip emblems are pretty controversial, because it is to easy to jazz up a plan jane ks98 with the emblem off a stick pin or the like. There are a few styles and types that are widely accepted, especially those with RLB emblems. The only way to be confident about it being period is how it is attached and that the grips haven't been messed with. If it turns out to have two slender pins bent under the grip, I wouldn't have a problem with it. I have seen a few with the Heer eagle on them, but I don't remember if they were exactly this style or how many style of Heer eagles were used.

    For what it is worth, I like it so far,
    Jim
