    Nice bayonet,the German letters I & J are interchangeable,so it could be Infantry Regiment.....Pete. ( but I`ve been wrong before )

    Nice military bayonet 84/98 in what is referred to by collectors as mounted frog. My friend has a similar marked frog. ASW E.u.F. Horster built in 1942 I don't know on the JR no I have read as stated could be Infantry Reg or a Jager. Hopefully someone can tell you what they think. We have some good experts here on this thread. timothy

    Busman...there is a wealth of information regarding codes and numbering on these K98 bayos on this thread here http://www.warrelics.eu/forum/k98-ba...d-rbnr-233978/

    click over the highlighted titles which will take you to that thread of info. Great stuff there for this type of collecting

    Thanks for all the info , hopefully someone will give info on it being an infantry division number or a jäger division or maybe it points to something else.

    Since 1939 this type of frog was introduced for the whole Heer (Army).
